MOOCs issued by Coursera
The courses have so far not met the requirements set by Chalmers on academic documentation. Several important criteria are inadequately documented such as lack of learning objectives, scope and depth of the courses, the name of the course, the student's name is not always stated correctly in English or Swedish and verification of identity is not structured and secured.
No pre assessment is offered, for any type of documentation
Chalmers will not pre-assess any documentation. Do not send any documents directly to Chalmers Admissions. All applications will be assessed on a national and local level, both by the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) and Chalmers Admissions.
