5 Sida 5 av 6 If the programme contains elective or optional components, or if a student chooses not to complete a certain course, the choices made can affect the possibility of fulfilling the degree requirements. For more information about degrees and degree requirements, consult the local degree regulations which are published (in Swedish only) on the University website. Quality Assurance Course evaluations are carried out on completion of the course, with feedback to the students. Programme evaluations are carried out annually on what is called a programme evaluation day. Course and programme evaluations are presented and discussed by programme coordinators, work groups in the various main fields of study and in teachers teams working with the programme, whereupon changes to the programme may be considered. A compilation of evaluations and key figures is also presented to the School Council, where changes to the programme can be initiated. Student Participation The students, via the Student Union, are represented on the School Management Group and the School Council. In these groups, questions concerning the content of the courses and study programmes as well as general matters of the School are discussed. Every programme has a programme coordinator whose duty it is to handle the contacts with the various student associations of the programme and with individual students. Students on the programme are invited to join work groups for development of the programme. Research Basis The University s research is conducted primarily within six prioritised specialisations: Didactics and Intercultural Communication; Embedded Systems; Innovation and Product Development; Environment, Energy and Resource Optimization; Sustainable Development, Working Life and Management; and Health and Welfare. The Business and Economics programme is primarily linked to the Sustainable Development, Working Life and Management specialisation. The courses are based on a disciplinary foundation in that research-trained teachers participate in the planning and development and also teach in the programme s courses. Many of the courses at second-cycle level are directly aimed towards research studies. Third Stream Mission The University works actively to offer academic courses and study programmes that lead to employment, among other things by developing the programmes in cooperation with the surrounding community. By way of preparation for a future career, the programme contains a number of components with a direct link to working life. These components can vary,
6 Sida 6 av 6 depending on the course, but common to them all is that the knowledge and skills the studies give are used in situations connected to work situations. Internationalisation Mälardalen University has for a long time considered internationalisation to be one of the most important factors ensuring that education and research maintain good quality. The University has a number of partner universities where a student can pursue a part of his/her studies. Contact the International Coordinator at the School for more information. More information concerning studies abroad is to be found on the University website. As a student it is good to be exposed to international features during the study period. This contributes towards increasing competence and understanding, both very important qualities in today s labour market. A student choosing assignments with an international profile or taking part in the Student Union s mentoring work can do a lot to further personal and professional development. Intercultural competence is important regardless of whether future employment is in Sweden or anywhere else in the world. Equality The programme students are treated and judged equally regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability or transgender identity/expression. In cases where any disability obstructs participation in courses, assistance is offered. The students are informed of their rights as students at Mälardalen University. Otherwise we work according to the University s Policy and Action Plan for Equality and Equal Opportunities and that is published (in Swedish only) on the University website. Other regulations For every course at the University, the forms of how the students performances are to be assessed, such as types of examination for course components and grades, are stated in the course syllabus. Examination for a course is summarily described in the course syllabus, which is clarified and supplemented by written information at the start of the course. The University has laid down rules and regulations for examination, and these are available via the University s website.
