For students attending the Master's Programme in Nutrition Science (60 ECTS) Important information regarding the discontinuation of the one-year Master's programme in Nutrition Science

The programme will be given for the last time autumn 2021 and after that a two-year master’s programme will start. The one-year programme will run as usual during the coming academic year (August 30th, 2021 - June 3rd, 2022).

For newly admitted students to the programme

This academic year 2021/2022 will run as usual. Re-examinations will be offered until the end of the spring semester 2024.

After this date they will not be assessed. 

If you have started the programme this year (autumn 2021) and have a valid reason for a study break, we might be able to set up an individual study plan for you, but possibilities might vary from case to case and need to be discussed with the Programme Director and the Study counsellor.

FAQ:s

Q: Can I swap programmes and start the two-year programme instead?
A: No, you will need to apply again.

 

Q: Will I be eligible if I apply to the two-year programme instead?
A: Yes.

 

Q: Can I study the one-year programme and then get credits for one year on the two-year programme?
A: No. The individual courses on the two programmes will differ. But you might be able to get credits for parts in the new courses.

 

Q: What happens if I get ill or pregnant? Can I apply for a study leave?
A: Yes, you can apply for a study leave and an individual study plan will be set up. This will depend on the individual case. It might in some cases be easier to apply for the 2-year Master's programme instead and maybe get credits for what you have done so far instead. Talk to the study counsellor or the Programme Director about your possibilities.
