Regular theory and method courses, as well as more practically oriented courses designed to train generic and other general skills, should be offered in the context of the Doctoral School in the Humanities. This will allow doctoral students to be offered more instruction in larger groups and be part of a larger research community, which will stimulate intellectual exchange and is expected to have positive effects on the doctoral students’ knowledge and skill level. These courses, which include interdisciplinary elements and are offered to a large group of doctoral students from several fields of study, should be able to utilise, develop and enhance the expertise that already exists at the departments. 

The range of courses offered should include courses in both Swedish and English.

Allocation of places in joint faculty courses and credit-bearing components within themes

The application form adopted by the Faculty Board should be used by doctoral students to apply for a place in a generic course or theme. The supervisor/equivalent must support the doctoral student’s application with a motivation as to why the doctoral student should participate in the course or theme. The supervisor will submit the proposal to the Faculty Board of Humanities.

All themes should be open to all doctoral students, but it is normally only possible for a doctoral student to participate actively in a single theme from beginning to end.

The Faculty’s doctoral students have priority for places in the courses. External doctoral students can be admitted to a generic course or theme subject to availability. External doctoral students should be registered in Ladok in order to enable the Board to monitor all participants in a course.

The goal is to accommodate all interested doctoral students at the Faculty.
