Prerequisites:

Many results are based on results from commutative algebra. Basic knowledge of commutative algebra (corresponding to roughly the first half of the commutative algebra course) is recommended. 
Target skills and knowledge:

Knowledge of the basic concepts, constructions and techniques of algebraic geometry. Competence in relating the different properties of algebraic varieties and the main theoretical results about them. Problem solving skills in algebraic geometry. 
Examination methods:

Written exam. 
Assessment criteria:

Mastering the key techniques and concepts of algebric geometry.
Competence in applying the theoretical results on algebraic varieties and their properties in specific examples, for instance in the solution of exercises.
Problem solving skills in algebraic geometry. 
Course unit contents:

This course is intended as a foundational course in algebraic geometry, starting from the basics of the subject and progressing to more avanced techniques such as the study of sheaves and schemes.
Contents:
Affine varieties.
The Zariski topology.
The sheaf of regular functions on a variety.
Morphisms of varieties.
Projective varieties.
Dimension of a variety.
Introduction to schemes. 
Planned learning activities and teaching methods:

Lectures. Homework, in the form of weekly exercise sheets. The weekly exercise sheets are discussed during problem sessions. 
Additional notes about suggested reading:

The course is based on Andreas Gathmann's lecture notes at TU Kaiserslautern, available online at
http://www.mathematik.unikl.de/agag/mitglieder/professoren/gathmann/notes/alggeom/
There are weekly exercise sheets available on the Moodle page of the course.
