2.6 Portfolio with a research-based approach

A portfolio-form thesis is a long-term process consisting of outputs made at different stages of studies. It provides the student with an opportunity to discuss and examine the theme of their choice from different perspectives in a number of projects.

A portfolio-form thesis forms a coherent, documented whole of these processes and outputs. It includes a written report in which the student compiles a professional knowledge base that binds the outputs together.

  3. Purpose and objective of the portfolio
  4. Process and material for compiling the portfolio
