Pursuant to Act 985 of October 21, 2009 on Universities (the University Act) with subsequent changes, the following curriculum for the Bachelor's programme in Medialogy is established. The programme also follows the Framework Provisions and the Examination Policies and Procedures for the Faculties of Engineering and Science.
The Bachelor’s programme is organised in accordance with the Ministry of Science’s Ministerial Order no. 814 of June 29, 2010 on Bachelor’s and Master’s Programs at Universities (the Ministerial Order of the Study Programs) and Ministerial Order on University Examinations (the Examination Order) with subsequent changes. Further reference is made to the Admission Order and the Grading Scale Order.
The programme is offered in Aalborg.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under Faculty of Engineering and Science, Aalborg University.
The Bachelor’s programme falls under Study Board of Media Technology
The Bachelor’s programme is associated with the external examiners corps on Nationwide engineering examiners/Electronics, IT and Energy (Electromagnetic direction).
Admission requires an upper secondary education.
According to the Admission Order, the programme’s specific entry requirements are:
cf. the Admission Order.
The University can stipulate requirements concerning conducting additional exams prior to the start of study.
The study board may limit admission or cancel the education if the number of admitted students is too low. The study board may cancel the education prior to the start of the study in specific loca-tions where Aalborg University and the Study Board for Media Technology offer the Medialogy ed-ucation (including, but not limited to, the locations in Aalborg, Esbjerg and Copenhagen).
The Bachelor’s programme entitles the graduate to the Danish designation: Bachelor (BSc) i medialogi. The English designation is: Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Medialogy.
The Bachelor’s programme is a 3-year, research-based, full-time study programme. The programme is set to 180 ECTS credits.
The Study Board can approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from other Bachelor’s programmes in lieu of programme elements in this programme (credit transfer). The Study Board can also approve successfully completed (passed) programme elements from another Danish programme or a programme outside of Denmark at the same level, in lieu of programme elements within this curriculum. Decisions on credit transfer are made by the Study Board based on an academic assessment. See the Joint Programme Regulations for the rules on credit transfer.
In exceptional circumstances, the Study Board study can grant exemption from those parts of the curriculum that are not stipulated by law or ministerial order. Exemption regarding an examination applies to the immediate examination.
The rules for examinations are stated in the Examination Policies and Procedures published by the faculty on their website.
In the assessment of all written work, regardless of the language it is written in, weight is also given to the student's formulation and spelling ability, in addition to the academic content. Orthographic and grammatical correctness as well as stylistic proficiency are taken as a basis for the evaluation of language performance. Language performance must always be included as an independent dimension of the total evaluation. However, no examination can be assessed as ‘Pass’ on the basis of good language performance alone; similarly, an examination normally cannot be assessed as ‘Fail’ on the basis of poor language performance alone.
The Study Board can grant exemption from this in special cases (e.g., dyslexia or a native language other than Danish).
The Bachelor’s project must include an English summary (or another foreign language: French, Spanish or German upon approval by the Study Board). If the project is written in English, the summary must be in Danish (The Study Board can grant exemption from this). The summary must be at least 1 page and not more than 2 pages (this is not included in any fixed minimum and maximum number of pages per student). The summary is included in the evaluation of the project as a whole.
At programmes that are taught in Danish, it is assumed that the student can read academic texts in modern Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and English and use reference works, etc., in other European languages. At programmes taught in English, it is assumed that the student can read academic text and use reference works, etc., in English.
The following competence profile will appear on the diploma:
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has competencies acquired through an educational programme that has taken place in a research environment.
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme has fundamental knowledge of and insight into his/her subject's methods and scientific foundation. These properties qualify the graduate of the Bachelor’s programme for further education in a relevant Master’s programme as well as for employment on the basis of the educational programme
Students who complete the Bachelor’s Programme will obtain the following qualifications:
The Programme is structured in modules and organized as a problem-based study. A module is a Programme element or a group of Programme elements, which aims to give students a set of professional skills within a fixed time frame specified in ECTS credits, and concluding with one or more examinations within specific exam periods. The examinations are defined in the curriculum.
The Programme is based on a combination of academic, problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approaches and organized based on the following work and evaluation methods that combine skills and reflection:
The BSc education in Medialogy is taught in English. All activities, including the above stated, are carried out in English. All exercise work and deliverables, project-work (as well as any documentation in connection to these) delivered by the student must be written in English and all exams are carried out in English. In accordance with the current Framework Provisions, The Study Board for Media Technology may choose to exempt from this rule in extra-ordinary cases, which in principle requires a well-documented application from the student and/or teacher.
Rules concerning the progress and completion of the Bachelor´s Programme:
The student must participate in all first year examinations by the end of the first year of study in the Bachelor´s Programme, in order to be able to continue the Programme. The first year of study must be passed by the end of the second year of study, in order that the student can continue his/her Bachelor´s Programme.
In special cases, however, there may be exemption from the above if the student has been on a leave of absence. Leave is granted during first year of study only in the event of maternity, adoption, military service. UN service or where there are exceptional circumstances.
The Bachelor’s program must be completed no later than six years after it was begun.
All modules are assessed through individual grading according to the 7-point scale or Pass/Fail. All modules are assessed by external examination (external grading) or internal examination (internal grading or assessment by the supervisor only).
