Frequently Asked Questions

  • When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.

  • The certificate is not part of a formal qualification from Lund University.

  • The learners are not required to purchase a textbook since all readings will be provided online. All reading materials are free and will be available to use for the duration of the course.

  • At the end of this course, you will have a basic understanding of how to:

    · Understand the relevant regulations governing the internal European Union market

    · Establish and run a company within the European Union

    · Employ staff and recognize workers’ rights and obligations

    · Comply with tax regulations and environmental standards

    · Set up agreements and resolve cross-border disputes

    · Successfully analyse EU case law and draft case reports

  • The course staff will participate in the discussion forum and welcome questions and comments. We encourage the learners to be active and engaged, interacting with other participants and sharing ideas.

  • Once you enroll and purchase the course, you’ll have access to all content once the session begins (for session-based course) or immediately (for self-paced courses); if you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments. You can watch the lectures and submit the assignments at any time that works for you, although you should try to keep up with the suggested deadlines to stay on track.

  • Not a problem - course schedules are flexible, and course fee payments provide 180 days of full course access and Certificate eligibility. Self-paced courses have suggested deadlines, but you won’t be penalized for missing deadlines as long as you earn your Certificate within 180 days. Session-based courses may require you to meet deadlines to stay on track; but if you fall behind, you can switch to a later session, and any work you’ve completed will transfer with you.

  • You can access video lectures and certain assignments for free in all courses. The free experience is intended to give you the opportunity to explore the course and decide if it is something you wish to pursue. If you do decide that you would like to complete the course, we encourage you to upgrade your experience by purchasing the course, or to apply for financial aid if you cannot afford the course fee.

  • You will be eligible for a full refund until two weeks after your payment date, or (for courses that have just launched) until two weeks after the first session of the course begins, whichever is later. You cannot receive a refund once you’ve earned a Course Certificate, even if you complete the course within the two-week refund period. View our full refund policy.

  • Yes! Coursera provides financial aid to learners who would like to complete a course but cannot afford the course fee. To apply for aid, select "Learn more and apply" in the Financial Aid section below the "Enroll" button. You'll be prompted to complete a simple application; no other paperwork is required.

  • This Course doesn't carry university credit, but some universities may choose to accept Course Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more. Online Degrees and Mastertrack™ Certificates on Coursera provide the opportunity to earn university credit.
