These compulsory components include the optional courses from which a student is obliged to choose [e.g. Frontiers of Science (FOS)-courses].The study load (in credits) and level have been stated for each of the components. The number of credits is stated to indicate the study load The prospectus (e-study guide) includes more detailed information on credits, level, content and structure of each compulsory component. 3.2 Freedom of choice In addition to the compulsory components referred to in 3.1.1, students select elective components The scope of the elective area of the specialisation programmes mentioned in Appendix II, involves opting for FOS-courses or Guest Lectures (GL) not yet taken within the scope of the compulsory (14- credit) FOS/GL area, opting for an extension of a Junior Research Project under prior permission of the examining board, or opting for other elective courses indicated in the prospectus/ study guide As an alternative, the elective area may also be partly or completely fulfilled by taking selected components from Master s programmes at Karolinksa Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, or at Ruprecht Karls Universität, Heidelberg, Germany The elective area may also be partly or completely fulfilled by taking components from other university Master s programmes. This latter alternative requires the prior permission of the examination board. Before granting permission, the examination board will evaluate the content and cohesion of the programme Any student enrolled in the programme may, with the permission of the board of examiners, compose a curriculum from components offered by an institution that has an examination attached to it. When granting permission, the board of examiners specifies to which degree programme offered by the institution that curriculum is deemed to belong. 3.3 Practicals The prospectus lists the courses which include practicals, as well as the nature of and study load for these practicals. It also indicates whether participation in these practicals is mandatory for entry to the examination of the component. The examining board may grant exemption from a practical; in that case, the board may or may not impose alternative requirements. The board may authorise the examiner in question to grant the aforementioned exemption. 3.4 Registration for Courses Participation in courses is in order of registration, with the provision that students who are registered in a programme are guaranteed access to compulsory courses of that programme. The number of participants per course may be subject to a minimum or maximum. Access to Frontiers of Science (FOS) courses, Laboratory Animal Course, How to Write a Research Proposal, and Scientific Conduct is secured by a lottery procedure which allows for equal and fair participation possibilities to all students. 9
