Degree project

Before you can apply for your degree certificate, you must complete an independent work, a degree project. This is usually carried out at the end of your education at first- and second cycle level. Your education will provide details about your degree project.

What is a degree project?

A degree project is an independent work that you carry out under the supervision of a teacher/researcher. You conduct your project either within the program you are studying or as a freestanding course, leading to a Bachelor's, professional, or Master's degree. A programme leading to a degree always contains one course that is a degree project. The degree project is sometimes referred to as an exjobb.

What the independent work entails depends on your education. Often the work consists of a written thesis with an oral presentation and opposition. For educations in the fine, applied and performing arts, the presentation often consists of exhibitions, readings, presentations and screenings.
