A number of services are available as soon as you get your student account; see “More information” on the next page. Many things can be done at the student section of Lnu.se/student, for example:


 ·         IT support

·         How to get a Student account - support and guides

·         Student email - support and guides

·         Learning platform

·         The student union at Linnaeus University

·         Scholarships, etc.


The programme syllabus is the official document that guides the teaching of the programme and its courses, i.e. see below the content of the syllabus.





More information about the programme can be found on the University web page

Equipment for the distance students

It is important that the distance students follow the lectures through our e-learning platform as well as use a headset and not the built-in microphones and speakers of their computer. A typical headset diminishes the echo enabling us to hear each other’s voice clearly, which increases the quality of our communication. Furthermore, you should also equip yourself with a web camera.

Consequently, this is an important part of the Master Programme to be able to use the headset and e-learning platform properly, since our programme is partly for distance studies. See also the section “Information on distance courses” on the next page.


Orientation for international students is offered before the start of the courses and information is sent out by international office: More info here.

Career possibilities

After the education you could work with projects with the purpose to plan, design and introduce information systems intended to development businesses or organizations.

Information on distance courses

Students must have a computer and bandwidth enough for audio and video conferencing, a headset for sound quality and a web camera for enabling visual communications. If the proper equipment is not used, the quality of the interaction might be so bad that examination activities cannot be carried out to a satisfactory level. These will then be cancelled, and the student will have to retake the examination at a later occasion when appropriate technological equipment is in place.

Teaching is supported by video conferencing, i.e. Zoom Video Communications.

Examination seminars can be carried out by using Zoom, as mentioned above. If the presentation fails due to some technical problems, the student must redo the seminar.

Best Regards,

Jaime Campos
