The course in short

The diploma work is one of the final steps in your academic education. The diploma work is part of a process. An education in  physical science is typically rather broad and you should therefore consider early during your studies what you would like to do in your  professional life and eagerly try to develop the necessary background. For a physics student, this typically includes scientific understanding, ability to analyse and interpret results, and your effectiveness in communicating knowledge and results to others.

The bachelor’s degree course has a fixed start date and a number of compulsory elements and deadlines. At the end of the course, there is an oral presentation.
