    Teaching format

    The teaching consists of supervised internship in a research group at a university, college, or companies that conducts physics research and seminars. Participation in all teaching activities is compulsory. Supervisors and suggestions on internship are provided by the department. Before the internship period begins, a plan for the work is approved by the examiner.
    Under special circumstances the examiner may, after consultation with the relevant teacher, exempt the student from the obligation to participate in certain compulsory activities. The student may then be assigned an additional task to compensate.
