Objectives

The aim is that students will gain insights in possible work tasks in the student’s future profession, and learn how theoretical knowledge from the education can be applied in practice.

On completion of the course, students will be able to:
- perform certain practical tasks required to work at the organization where the practice is undertaken (placement)
- describe the most important skills required for work at the placement
- discuss, with in-depth reasoning, the relevance of knowledge from the student’s own education in relation to professional activities at the placement
- suggest how the student’s own theoretical knowledge can be applied in practice at the placement
- describe in detail the work conditions and different professional roles at the placement
- describe in detail the organization’s/company’s (placement) role in society
- reflect on the student’s own need of further knowledge to be able to work at the placement

Content

.Participating in the daily work activities at the placement will correspond to approximately 80 % of the study time on the course. The student will have an academic supervisor at SLU and a supervisor at the placement for questions and discussions about the work tasks. After the placement period, the student will summarize her/his experiences and present these both in a written report and orally. The report shall contain a presentation of the placement, a description of the work tasks and the student’s own description of how he/she has fulfilled the intended learning objectives of the course.

The student is responsible for finding a placement. The student also prepares and plans the placement by establishing contact with a host organization, in Sweden or abroad. The placement and planned activities for the student must be approved by the course leader. The student, the course leader and the supervisor at the placement will jointly specify which work tasks that the student will perform during the placement.

The practical supervision at the placement will be developed individually, in agreement between supervisors and student.
Attendance at the placement during the agreed hours as well as participation in a final seminar (the student’s oral presentation of experiences from the placement) are compulsory.
