3) Open Project in Organic Agriculture and/or elective courses (25554) The objective of the Open Project is to give the student the possibility to specialise within a subject area. This includes problem-oriented project work, if possible in connection with a project in a business or organisation, through which the student gets the opportunity to independently use part of the already acquired basic knowledge and, on the student’s own initiative, to collect and acquire new knowledge. Course content should be defined in cooperation between the student and the tutor. The content is to be set down in the “project agreement”. Credits: 5 or 10 ECTS/2.5 or 5 US credits
