A project course is a supervised individual work that is carried out in one of our research groups. Before the project starts, a work plan is written by the student in cooperation with the supervisor. The study topic should be related to ongoing research at the university or an external organization. Note that an agreement with a supervisor should be reached before you apply to this course. Please contact course coordinator Karin Holmfeldt firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to define a project.
The city of Kalmar is situated on the southeast coast of Sweden. Kalmar is a beautiful city with 65,000 inhabitants and a long history dating back to the Middle Ages, with many cosy neighbourhoods and great charm. The lush green areas surrounding Kalmar Castle and the city park are many students' favourite.
The proximity to the ocean and the island of Öland has left its mark on the city and there are many long pedestrian paths along the coast. It is never far to anything in Kalmar and most places can be reached in just 5-10 minutes' walk – the university, the ocean, the gym, or the city centre, Kvarnholmen.
In Kalmar the university buildings and student accommodations are spread throughout the town and are well integrated with the historical surroundings – making students feel part of the town.
