To study courses means freedom of choice. You can combine subjects according to your interests and profile your own education that results in a higher education qualification. One advantage of studying courses is that you can try different subjects before you decide on which subject you want to have as the main field of study in your higher education qualification.
You can study them in the order you want and vary the rate of study, which means either full-time studies, part-time studies or on distance.
The study types include scheduled appointments at the higher education institution/campus with lectures and self-studies.
Courses are usually initiated and completed with compulsory seminar meetings.
To study courses at the higher education institution, general entry requirements always apply.
To study summer courses has become increasingly popular in the recent years. Therefore, Högskolan i Gävle offers a selection of courses to take during the summer.
To facilitate your study planning, Högskolan i Gävle has collected a number of different recommended study paths that result in a bachelor's degree.
A recommended study path is designed around a main field of study (your future degree major), which is supplemented with courses in a number of other subjects that together create a whole.
The major difference between a study programme and a recommended study path is that there is not an established programme syllabus for a recommended study path.
