Education for PhD students

Postgraduate education

Continuous education is an essential part of PhD studies, and students can take a wide range of courses in agreement with their supervisor and director of studies. The number of course credits required for a licentiate or doctoral degree is determined by the study plans for each subject; the courses that the students must follow are decided in the individual study plan.
