The Local rules for first-cycle and second-cycle courses and examination (2020/615-1.1.1) provides that:

– the heading of the course, including an addition or change to the name
– scope in higher education credits
– grading scale for the entire course
– main field of study (also applies to adding a new main field)
– the course objectives which are not a correction of overlapping
objectives or minor changes to or clarifications of individual intended
course learning outcomes*
– entry requirements that entail a change in the level of specialisation.
*In the case of minor revisions of intended course learning outcomes, a follow-up must always be done in relation to the first version of the course established in order to ensure that the course has not changed to such an extent that it is considered a new course.
Note that when a new course syllabus is created, the course syllabus it replaces should be discontinued, see the routine for discontinuation of courses.
Discontinuation of courses
Local rules for first-cycle and second-cycle courses and examination (dnr: 2020/615-1.1.1) prescribes that:
- When a course is no longer being given or advertised to students, a decision
shall be made regarding discontinuation.*
- In conjunction with a course being discontinued, another three examination
opportunities for the course must be provided over the course of at least one
year. In total, the discontinued course must have provided at least five
- In conjunction with a course being discontinued, the university shall endeavour
to communicate this to the students concerned.
*The discontinuation of a course does not have to take place if the faculty only intends to suspend advertising the course for one or a few semesters
