The courses should preferably be offered by different member institutions each year. The courses can either be a series of courses within a related area, courses that form a thematic whole, or identical courses.
The application for course series is changed to include a short description of the course series, and a detailed description of the first course in the series. The respective applicant for the second to fourth course in the series must submit an application for his/her course for the board meeting in June the year before the course is scheduled to run. The Board will take student evaluations of previous courses in the series into consideration when reviewing applications for the second, third and fourth course in the series.
"NOVA prioritises course series to assure more predictability for students and teachers. Digitalisation will facilitate course series. Repetition of courses will enhance the quality of courses", (cf. details to the NOVA Strategy 2018-2021).
