What can I expect from a course before it starts? Where can I find information on exchange studies? Where can I get old exams? That is exactly what we are answering here! Please note that the information below concerns the department and not DISK, more information can be found on DSVs website.
Please note that these tips only apply to DSV students and not other students at Stockholm University.
- If the teachers have not posted old exams on iLearn, you can request old exams and answers via the student union office. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
1. If you want just questions, answers or both
2. Specify from what period (i.e. VT20 or a specific month)
3. When the exam or re-exam was written
4. Which language you wish (Swedish or English)
- Although it might feel tiring to submit a course evaluation when a course is finished, it is extremely important. The more people who submit the evaluations, the more foundation for improving the course.
- As a student at DSV, you have the possibility to go on exchange studies, an amazing oppurtunity. More information about exchange studies can be found here. Also, if you sign up for the buddy-program, you get an advantage when applying for exchange studies.
As a student, you have several rights, both according to law and regulations, but also according to local regulations at Stockholm university. Below are some rights that may be good to keep an eye on. If you have questions or opinions about your education or a course, you can contact the study monitoring at email@example.com.
