Workplace pedagogy: Intensive collaboration with working life is an essential part of every degree programme. It is possible to integrate studies and work on different levels and in different ways. In addition to the traditional work placement and thesis writing, you can participate in different kinds of projects linked to the working life. The projects may be carried out together with students of your own field or other fields of study. Several research, development and innovation projects give you the possibility to connect your studies with tasks offered by the working life. You can also utilise your own workplace as a learning environment, provided that your work corresponds with your field of study (formalisation of learning).
