Course content

The course is an individual reading course with focus on acquiring knowledge in a relevant research area that relates to the PhD student's thesis. The aim is to acquire knowledge of theories and methods within the current research area based on previous research.

Course information

The course is given four times per year and is an individual course. The course requires a written report as well as an oral presentation. The PhD student and their supervisor/co-supervisors are responsible for nomination of at least two potential co-examiners. Only one of the nominated co-examiners will be engaged during the course. The specialisation coordinator takes the final decision regarding the appointing of the co-examiner.

Being co-examiner means reading the student's written report based on the used literature and submit written feedback (max 1 A4 page) to the ordinary examiner, as well as participating in the oral presentation, which takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
