Competency aims

The purpose of the practical training is to provide the student with the possibility to apply from the education gathered knowledge and skills in working life and become familiar with central tasks within the specific area of the field in question. The main purpose of the practical training is to build an understanding of the connection of theory and practice, and to through examples see how theory is applied in practice.

Course contents

The responsibility for determining and assessing the practical training performance of the students lies with the teacher team. The basic guideline is that 15 ects of general practical training (training period 1) and an additional minimum of 15 ects of specialisation according to competence field (training period 2) are needed.

In order to receive the practical training as part of the studies, students should submit an application for practical training using this form.
