The topic, scope, methodology and literature as well as the presentation must be approved by the supervisor. The supervision covers the planning of the studies, information search, presentation planning and report writing. English (the presentation can be in Danish). Method of evaluation: Individual consisting of a presentation and an 8-10 page work report. Evaluation and assessment: Internal co-examiner, graded. Weighting: 20 ECTS credits.

In addition to the actual presentation, the student is required to prepare an 8-10 page work report in English. The report covers the initial investigation of the topic, a description of decisions and issues relating to the presentation of the topic and finally an assessment of the experiences acquired by the student in the process.
