Will I receive university credit?

You will not receive university credit upon completion of an open course at Dalarna University. What you will receive is a form of confirmation recognising your participation. For example, Dalarna University awards a certificate to students in the course "The Midwifery Profession and Its Scope of Practice in Bangladesh"  (see below) after they complete the course and pass an online test.

Example of a Successful Dalarna University Open Course

In 2018, Dalarna University received funding from the United Nations Population Fund to undertake a project to train midwifery teachers in Bangladesh. The project is extremely important, with a high number of students taking the online course.
