Degree projects

The degree project course contains an individual proect that normally finishes your university studies. It can be a lab- or field-based project or a litterature study. You may do it within an established research group or at a company or authority. Examination is based on your performance throughout the project as well a oral and written presentation.

To start a project you must have applied and been accepted to one of our degree project courses. 

We offer courses at both Bachelor's (15 and 30 hp) and Master's level (30, 45 and 60 hp). Requirements and routines may vary so contact the coordinator and/or study counseller for mor information.

Difficulties deciding?

If you need inspiration to find a project and supervisor we have compiled lists over previous degree projects in biology and environmental sciences.

On our research pages, there are also short descriptions over our various research groups/individual researchers, including  contact information to potential supervisors.
