UCL DEPARTMENT OF SCANDINAVIAN STUDIES


UNDERGRADUATE COURSE PROGRAMMES


2008-2009


Students must take note of the following from the Academic Regulations for Students, point 15.6 (see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/registry/ucl-staff/blue-book/ for full details):


A candidate entering an examination for a course for a course-unit degree must be examined in all parts of the examination prescribed for that course. Therefore (unless prevented by illness or other adequate cause for which certification must be provided) a candidate must take each prescribed test and submit sufficient work to enable him/her to be examined.


What this means is that you must complete all assessments and all parts of each assessment in order to be awarded a mark for any unit or half-unit. For example, if a course is examined by two essays, you must submit two essays by the deadlines set. Similarly, you must attend the oral examination of any practical language unit as well as take the written paper. If you do not complete all parts of all assessments, this will normally result in your being deemed to have failed to complete that particular course unit, which in effect is the same as never having taken it. To repeat: Students must sit all written papers, attend all oral examinations and submit all written work pertinent to a particular course unit or half-unit.


The information contained in this brochure is correct at the time of going to press, but no guarantee can be given that it will not be amended before the start of, or during, the session to which it refers.

^ STRUCTURE OF DEGREE PROGRAMMES


1. HOW DOES THE COURSE UNIT SYSTEM WORK?


• Each full course unit represents one quarter of a year’s work for each student, and each half-unit one eighth. Each year you are expected to take courses to a total value of four course units; this annual quota can be made up of a combination of both full and half units.


• Course units are examined during the year in which the courses are taken. In the Department of Scandinavian Studies they are examined in a variety of ways; some are assessed solely on the basis of coursework or formal written examination, and some by a combination of coursework (and perhaps oral work) and formal written examination. Formal written examinations are usually held during the summer term.


• During their time at UCL, students who began their studies before 2005 will normally take 13 course units, the additional unit being the year abroad unit or the year’s study at the University of Iceland. Students beginning their studies in or after 2005 will normally take 16 course units. Further details about the course units to be taken during the year abroad are listed in this brochure.


^ 2. TYPES OF STUDENT


• There are seven types of undergraduate student following courses in the department:




  • Single Subject students, who are registered for our degrees in Scandinavian Studies, Icelandic and Viking Studies;




  • Combined Studies students, who are registered for the degrees in Modern Languages, Scandinavian Studies and History and Scandinavian Studies with Management Studies;




  • Language and Culture students, who have a Scandinavian language as their major or minor language;




  • European Social and Political Studies students, who have a Scandinavian language as their major or minor language;




  • Affiliate students, who are registered elsewhere either inside or outside UCL and take individual courses in Scandinavian Studies on an ad hoc basis;




  • Short Course Students, who are not registered elsewhere, and who take individual courses in Scandinavian Studies on an ad hoc basis;




  • Socrates Students, who are registered at a Scandinavian university with which the Department has established a Socrates link, and who spend a year or part of a year in the Department.



^ 3. SELECTION OF COURSES


The various programmes of study for Single Subject and Combined Studies students are outlined in the following section. Other students should consult the tutors in their parent department for details about their own programme of study. It is important to remember that your selection of course units in any given year must conform to the pattern stipulated for your chosen degree programme, and must always have the approval of the Departmental Tutor at the beginning of each session. Should you wish to change courses after the beginning of the session, this may only be done after consultation with the Departmental Tutor and with his/her consent.
