The Examination Regulations of the University of Agder regulate the graduation requirements for each programme of study.
In the light of experience, knowledge and skills in sports, and after having completed the programme the student will:
- be able to plan, organise, carry out, coach and evaluate all-round physical activities for children and adolescents
