Learning outcomes

The aim of the General Studies is to help the student to start the studies and to finish them successfully.

During the studies the student will
- understand what it takes to study at university level; the student knows the structure of the Master's degree programme and how to plan the studies independently and responsibly and how to take courses and where to get advice, and realises the importance of his/her independent work in progressing in studies.
- know how to seek information needed in MSc studies
- know how to use university's IT services.
- learn how to communicate in academic and working life and how to develop these skills independently.
