- Type of instruction
The teaching method on the AP Degree Programme in Computer Science takes the form of a
dynamic, interactive process with emphasis on active student participation. The teaching is
based on relevant business practice, and combines practice and theory. Issues that appear in
different types of enterprises in the IT industry are incorporated. The students are responsible for their own learning, and both they and the teachers make a constructive contribution to the learning process.
To ensure optimal academic learning and personal development for the individual students, the AP Degree Programme in Computer Science applies varied educational practices with emphasis on dialogue, discussion and projects.
The teaching is varied and includes classroom instruction, guest lectures, company visits, project work in groups and individual work – often with an interdisciplinary focus and always with a practice-oriented approach. In addition to the academic content, the various ways of learning are also intended to develop the student's ability to work independently and in cooperation with others.
Common to all the learning activities is that the programme always aims to define clear goals
for the activities.
Classes can be organised so as to ensure that foreign languages are incorporated in the form
of teaching material and as part of the teaching.
