Under "Administrasjon" (1) you will find the basic administrative information you filled in when starting the process, as described in the above paragraph. You may edit this information.

The next tab is "Forhåndsvarsel" (advance notice), aka "Trinn I" (Step 1), meant for sending a notification of intent to apply for the creation of a new study programme, which is due February 1st.

The "Søknad" (application) tab (3) is used to write two documents.

  1. The actual application for creating a new study programme, aka. "Trinn II" (step 2), which is due June 1st.
  2. A summary of the application which is used for Rector's approval.

For both documents a template Word file is generated inside the workspace.

The rest of the tabs under "Trinn II" (4) are used to register the rest of the necessary and supplementary information that must be included in the application. The workspace automatically adds this into the application document.

The tab "Rammer" (framework for the study programme) consists of three pages that should be filled out by writing or selecting options. Remember to save for each page.

  • "Navn og eierskap" (Name and ownership): general information regarding name and persons.
  • "Egenskaper ved programmet" (Characteristics of the programme): additional information on the field of study, teaching, semester, credits, scope etc.
  • Finansiering (Funding): answer whether the program is fully funded above the institution's basic budget and choose the funding category.The different pages "rammer" consists of

The tab "Innmeldingsinformasjon" (Enrollment information) (5) collects all information that must be registered in FS when the study program is finally created.

The last tab, "Studieplanutvikling" (Study plan development) (6) is used to further edit the study plan texts after the application has been approved, in what is called the "zero year" before the study program starts. This is also where the application process for the study program is completed. At the bottom of the page there is a button, "Marker som ferdig" (Mark as complete) (see arrow). The button must be pressed when the study program is completely finished. Pressing it locks all the tabs in the workspace.
