Each year the MSLS class brings a wealth of personal connections from around the world and the programme team encourages students to make good use of them by arranging 'webinars' through use of BTH's IT capabilities, and on rarer occasions direct visits to Karlskrona.
These arrangements are student-led and reflect the interests, popular demand and learning needs of each class. They are coordinated with the programme team but generally take place outside scheduled class times, particularly during study periods 3 & 4 (January - June). BTH supports these initiatives but it is the resourcefulness of each MSLS class that determines their scope and makes them happen.
