Engelsk 4 x 15 stp
Welcome and semester start
Welcome to the English net programme!
This programme consists of two courses in the autumn semester and two courses in the spring semester. In each semester, one of these courses focuses on language, the other on culture and literature.
The two courses in Spring 2019 are:
ENG143N Phonetics and Varieties of English
ENG144N Literature, culture and society before 1900
If you are enrolled as a full-time student, you will take both a language course and a culture/literature course each semester. If you are a part-time student, you will take just one course each semester.
All lessons, assignments and exams take place online, meaning you are not required to come to Volda.
The first lessons will be posted in Week 1 (Wednesday 2 January) for ENG143N and Week 2 (Monday 7 January) for ENG144N.

Engelsk, nettstudium, deltid
English is today the most important language in the world. It is the mother tongue of some 400 million people, and the second language of many more. The net-based course gives a basic introduction to the main disciplines of English as an academic subject: linguistic, literary and cultural studies. The course qualifies students for further studies in English at intermediate (“fordjupning” level) and master’s level. The course also qualifies candidates to teach English, if combined with PPU (practical pedagogical training). From 2019, admission to PPU will be limited to holders of a master's degree. Students can choose whether to begin their studies either in the autumn semester or the spring semester: autumn semester is generally recommended. Students who choose to begin in the autumn should continue in the next semester with a unit in the same discipline (so that ENG141N in the autumn should be followed by ENG143N in the spring, ENG142N in the autumn should be followed by ENG144N in the spring). Students who begin in spring, should begin with ENG143N, then study the literature/culture units (ENG142N and ENG144N) before taking the final language unit ENG141N in the fourth semester. The programme of study is also offered full time.
In accordance with the national qualification framework, the student reaches the following learning outcomes after completing the programme:
The student possesses knowledge about
- the vocabulary, structure and function of the English language
- culture, society and literature in a selection of English-speaking countries
- standards and norms of academic writing and use of sources
- stylistic and cultural conventions needed to adapt language to different situations
The student is able to
- identify and analyse English language structures
- analyse and discuss English literature
- interpret cultural and social phenomena and texts from English-speaking countries
- use English confidently and functionally, in writing and speech
The student is able to
- independently develop their knowledge of English language, literature and culture
- communicate in English in different contexts.
The 60-credit course consists of four units of 15 credits (ECT) each. Two units (ENG141N and ENG142N) are offered in the autumn semester, and two units (ENG143N and ENG144N) are taught in the spring semester.
The student must have access to a computer, a web camera and a computer microphone.
The programme is net-based and there is a NOK 4000 fee per 15-credit module. In addition there is a NOK1500 fee for the ENG143N exam if taken as de-centralised.
