Introduction to the course

Last year I recorded an introduction to the course. This introduction is still accurate so I recommend you all to watch it before the first lecture in Växjö.

There are som things that you should bear in mind:

  • Ignore the dates in the recording. You find dates for 2018 in the course schedule
  • I am not on vacation this year so you should be able to reach me the week before the course starts
  • The course evaluation for HT2017 is to be found here: 1DV525-HT17
  • We have added additional tutoring times on Fridays (over slack). I am working on getting a teachers assistent based in Växjö.

Questions about the admission? Please contact Ewa Püschl. Well met!
