- He isn"t afraid to say that something is inadeqate, and that is a good thing! He is also knowledgeable in several areas which make you listen to what he says, and he gives good input for your questions and such. » (Very good)
- Did not get any written feedback at the seminars and also very little oral feedback during these seminars from the supervisor.» (Rather poor)
- I feel my suporvisor was of little help in meeting the goals expected from this activity. It was not clear what to achieve or focus nor how to do so. More of the answers of the supervisor seemed to encourage for the student to follow the line of research that he wanted. Furthermore,the comments on the second seminar were very positive. However, the grading did not correspond to the feedback given. In addition, the evaluation seemed to ask for more to the student than what is has been lead to during the whole supervision process.» (Rather poor)

- Nice to evaluate the results.» (Great extent)
- It almost needs to be longer, it felt like and same for the first seminar. We were only 4 in our group, but in seminar 2 Arni didn"t get a chance to say anything which would have been appreciated, to have a discussion face-to-face not only with your fellow student friends but with supervisor as well!» (Some extent)

- I can see the point of learning how to write a report but with this structure it does not really help. In order to help and develop, more supervision is required! And also, depending on your tutor you learn quite different things, a more equal judgement would be better!» (Adequate)
- Too much workload. I don"t know how you were thinking that we should manage all courses at the same time? There were no time even if you study 10 hours a day every week the whole semester... Really bad course! You didn"t put any time for this course on the weekly schedule, this course was something that we had to work with on nights and weekends and I think that is really bad! On top of that we didn"t get any help, we had to find out our self how to wright this shity paper! One of the worst courses I have ever taken...» (Poor)

30. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The host companys»
- The individual paper but consider cutting some group work or consolidating it with the other courses.»
- The grading of the term paper. I found the process very rewarding, all though it was a hard process!»
- The hoste companiy assignment has been really good. It is always interesting to come out and visit companies and hear about they work in reality.»
- host company and the seminars»
- Seminar 1 is significant for improving the paper.»
- Tutors and term paper seminars, but with different structure. »
- the individual term paper»
- Host company case»

31. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Not have so many host company seminars. We had it in all the courses.»
- Not sure about the how much the term paper gave me, maybe put more effort into the host companies instead. And grade the reports also»
- doesn"t need to have the last presentation (seminar) since we allready had presented all information in other courses. Need to cooporate with the other teachers from the other courses »
- Consider cutting some group work or consolidating it with the other courses.»
- Maybe some more lecture on how to structure an analysis, or just general writing would be appreciated, at least for me and I got the impression that many didn"t really know how to analyse their theory for a good while!»
- First of all it should be alot clearer what is expected of the course and how it is integrated in to the other course. I found it very confusing since there seemed to be no overall controll of the course. If there should be a term paper during the course and if it should be graded there should be more tutorial options. As it was this year I felt a bit left on my own trying to make the best of the situation. If the goal is to learn how to wright a propper report more guidence would have been appreciated. »
- the subject of the paper should be chosen later on»
- The way the tutors help out while writing the term paper. Also the four mandatory seminars should be more adapted to the level expected. For the host company, too much work since the most of the groups did not work that well. This may though be due to the whole program, an english test should definitely be performed before being accepted! »
- the structure of host company case report, as the parts was hard to connect and ungraded and workload very uneven (on other hand, it would be quite unfair to be graded on a hroup effort if the qroup is very uneaven)»
- The concept of the term paper»
- The choice of term paper subject is set way too early. I"d much rather write the paper later in the masters program. The expectations on the term paper is set too high. The host company case should also contribute to the final grading.»

32. Additional comments

- In total the host company part of the course was good, more info regarding the different tasks would have been good sice it has to be communicated by the student to the host company. Regarding the term paper I really diden"t see the point of it in the course.»
- A lecture about group dynamic could have been useful»
