Course Catalogue

You can find a number of initiatives as course coordinator and head of degree programme that supports your process when creating new course descriptions. Therefore on this page you can find the tools that supports your process that leads to the final approval of your course on a Board of Studie meating.

Therefore you can use this page to find: 

  • An overview of timeframes and deadlines
  • An overview of your range of courses from the last course catalogue
  • Links to templates in Danish and English
  • Links to background information about learning objectives, etc.
  • Links to the current academic relations.
  • Links to relevant coworkers; your programme coordinator 
  • An overview of the process and the parties involved.

Timeline for the autumn and spring semester

Here you can find the time schedule for the fall and spring semester. Click on the line and you will find more information about the relevant part of the process in the bottom of the timeline.

Template for new courses

You find the template for new course descriptions in Danish and English here.

Course descriptions must usually be available in both Danish and English. However, it is possible to refrain from the Danish version in the Master's degree programmes, as they (virtually all) are offered in English.

Process for academic regulations

Academic regulations are revised once a year at ST for degree programmes with summer intake and twice a year for degree programmes with both summer and winter intake.

Changes to academic regulations are submitted to the administration. Attached must be an overview of changes, including reasons for these changes, consequences for year groups as well as consequences for other degree programmes in which new courses are included or old courses are excluded. It is suitable to attach a degree programme diagram, which shows the new structure of the degree programme, possibly accompanied by a transition diagram.

Proposals for changes are sent to the relevant Head of Studies, which recommends to the Board of studies.

The role of the Board of studies

The course catalogue at ST is a legal part of the the degree programmes’ academic regulations. The individual course description is thus a legal document and ultimately what holds learning outcome, content, examination form, number of hours, etc.

It is therefore important that the course catalogue/range of courses for the individual degree programme is approved continuously by the relevant Board of studies, as it is the Board of studies' responsibility to ensure that academic regulations and the range of courses comply with the rules in force.

Therefore, all three Board of studies have annual cycles of work in which changes to the range of courses and academic regulations are handled twice a year - so that the course catalogue can open approx. April 1 and October 1 - and so that the students can register for courses May 1 and November 1.

  • When a new course is developed in a degree programme, it must be approved by the Board of studies.
  • When a previously approved course is revised significantly, it must be approved by the Board of studies.
  • When a course is excluded from the catalogue, the Board of studies must be informed.

The role of the Degree programme committee

The role of the Degree programme committee in relation to the range of courses is to contribute to preparing course descriptions and academic regulations.

The Degree programme committee develops the range of courses as well as the academic and qualifying profile of the courses. This committee contributes to the development of new forms of teaching and examination.

The committee handles and approves the overall range of courses, including those who are submitted for handling and approval in the Board of studies.

Role and terms of reference can be found here (Danish).


Changes are approves in the Degree programme committee (UU) and the Board of studies (Varighed 00:31)

When your course changes have been approves in the UU, you see how to indicate it in the overview.

Role of the lecturer

As Course coordinator, you must annually review the course description and ensure that it reflects the changes the course has undergone through previous conduct as well as planned changes for the coming conduct.  In case of major revisions or the development of a new course, the description must be approved by the Board of studies.

The course description is meant to be understood and applied by the students and therefore written so the students understand what the course includes, which activities they wish to participate in, and what is expected from them at the end. In the description of the purpose of the course, you have the opportunity to point out why exactly this course is relevant to the students. 

In connection with the revision, it is important that you ensure the ongoing coherence of the course. Reconsider whether or not the teaching activities of the course help the students to achieve the intended learning outcome. If not, maybe the activities should change. Furthermore, consider whether or not the assessment (final exam plus any ongoing evaluation) tests the intended learning outcome in a satisfactory manner.

In the revision, you should focus especially on:

  • That the course content is up-to-date and understandable to the students
  • That the intended learning outcome is evident and describes what is expected of the students after the course
  • That the exam form/forms assess the course's intended learning outcome
  • That the teaching activities support the students’ learning so the students can acquire the intended learning outcome.

Course descriptions is read by the course coordinator (Varighed 00:27)
