Teaching methods

Our goal is to provide our students with education of high quality, and we place high value on dynamic and interactive teaching methods. This means that our courses consist of both lectures and seminars, as well as student presentations, written assignments and practical exercises (like moot courts). Guest lectures and excursions to relevant institutions might be a further addition to the traditional teaching.

We encourage our students to participate actively during the lectures and seminars, and expect them to be prepared for lectures and seminars by studying the corresponding curriculum. Students should study independently in periods when there are no lectures or seminars, both individually and in study groups.



Our courses are assessed by an exam in the end of the semester when the course is offered. The examination type is either a six-hour closed book written exam, or a written home exam combined with an oral exam. All written exams are held digitally.
