University of Aberdeen
Candidates must normally have an Honours degree to at least 2.1 standard in an appropriate discipline or equivalent qualifications and experience. Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English Language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that you meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. If you are in doubt about your proficiency in English, contact the British Council office or its equivalent in your country. If your first language is not English, it is important that your proficiency in English is good in order for you to study successfully at the University of Aberdeen. Without this ability you will find great difficulty in understanding lectures, producing written work and sitting examinations.
Students cover a range of topics on early Scandinavia: Old Norse language and literature, Viking religion and mythology, runes and place names of early Scandinavia, and approaches to Scandinavian Studies. If desired, courses from other programmes are available. At the core of the programme is the Old Norse language from the beginning students read actual sagas and mythological works in the original language. In the 2nd semester students begin preparation for the dissertation in the form of a structured course to help them design and plan the topic. The dissertation, on a topic of the students' choice, is supervised on a one-on-one basis by a member of staff.
Students must acquire 180 credits over the course of the year (105 for courses + 75 for the dissertation). Courses should normally total 45-60 credit points in each half-session. Assessment is based on written work and moderated according to university standards. Every student is assigned a dissertation supervisor based on their research interests.
