Literature essay and colloquium

All students in the research specialisation of the MSc programmes Chemistry and Life Science and Technology are required to complete a colloquium. The colloquium is designed to test your skills in literature searching, critical reading, using source materials, extracting relevant information from the literature, reviewing a topic, writing good sentences and paragraphs, creating a logical argumentation structure, using visuals, following author guidelines, using good academic English, giving a presentation and engaging in scientific discussion.

Attendance form for colloquia and thesis talks

Part of the requirement for the colloquium is attendance at other students’ colloquia. Every student has to attend at least 7 student colloquia before their own colloquium (10 colloquia for students not following WORK). An attendance list must be handed in before the colloquium is graded.
