A personal study plan is a plan that student herself/himself makes about the content, scope and duration of the studies. The starting point for the personal study plan is the structure of the degree. The plan will help the student to proceed and schedule the studies. Compilation of a study plan starts at the beginning of M.Sc. studies and continues until the end of the studies. The personal study plan is made in collaboration with a personal study plan supervisor. The course includes group meetings, personal reflection, individual discussions and making and updating a personal study plan. Updating e-portfolio is encouraged.
