Third semester

During the third semester you have the opportunity to study abroad, do an Internship or read optional courses. The Internship gives you the opportunity to test the knowledge you have recieved during your Programme studies in a real workplace. You can also choose to study abroad at one of our Partner Universities around the world. If you apply for optional courses at Uppsala University you need to remember that you are not guaranteed a place. As these courses may be very popular it is important that you give more than one choice. When selecting students priority is given according to the number of credits taken during earlier semesters on the Master Programme at Uppsala University.
