How will the new ´Fremdriftsreform´, the Study Progress Reform, affect you and your studies? Anni Søborg, Vice Director for Education at the University of Copenhagen has offered some detailed responses
(Editor’s update December 2013. The study progress reform has been delayed one year, so it first takes effect from 2014. The reform when it takes place may differ in details from what is described below.)
We have already reported on the so-called speed-up reforms since it was made official, but the reform’s terms are raising more questions.
The Danish-language university news site Uniavisen.dk asked Anni Søborg, Vice Director for Education at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH), for answers that can help you know how exactly the reform affects you. We have taken the best bits and compiled them into the following guide:
This is still being considered. Presumably, it will just be a case of signing up to a summer school at the beginning of the academic year and providing evidence. This way, the ECTS you get from summer school will be taken into account and be included in the semester total.
So far, UCPH hasn’t made a final decision, but recommends that students with alternative study plans wait and see their student advisor to draw up a new study plan once the University has made its final decision.
Anni Søborg recommends signing up for the new, normalised study plan from this coming spring already, and taking part in the overlooked student environment study to make their voices be heard.
Finally, if you want to know more about the reform and how it affects you, contact your student adviser or get in touch with your individual course advisers via. KUnet with more specific questions.
Disclaimer: UCPH’s official policy regarding the Study Progress Reform to speed-up studies is still under way. It’s therefore important to stress that Anni Søborg’s answers are based on drafts and suggestions, and some points are subject to change. The official announcement should be out shortly before Christmas.
