Bachelor programmes

The Bachelor's degree is awarded by all state universities, specialized university institutions, university colleges and a good number of other higher education institutions, both private and public. The nominal length of studies to obtain this degree is three years of study (180 "studiepoeng"/ECTS).

The Master's degree is awarded by state universities, specialized university institutions, several university colleges and some private institutions. The degree is normally obtained after two years of study (120 "studiepoeng"/ECTS), following the completion of a bachelor’s degree. An important part of this degree is independent work on the Master's thesis (earning between 30 and 60 "studiepoeng"/ECTS).

PhD programmes

The PhD program in Child and Youth Participation and Competence Development is an interdisciplinary doctoral degree program. The aim of the program is to train researchers who want to build and disseminate knowledge about the participation and competence development of children and youth as they encounter a complex society.

More information about the PhD programme, application process and courses

The PhD program in Public and Private Service Innovation (INSEPP) is located at The Center for Innovation in Services (CIS). The CIS defines innovation as either the process of introducing new ideas into practice or the transmitting of already known ideas to a new context. Innovations may be radical in the sense that they involve something completely new and entail a break with current practices, but they can also be incremental in that they involve small changes in the same established practices.
