Annual follow-up at PHS

Follow-up is mandatory for all doctoral students and should be submitted once a year. This page decribes how to conduct a follow-up at the Department of Public Health Sciences. 

Your first follow-up should take place about 12 months after admission to doctoral studies. Annual follow-up occurs even if your activity is low as well as the year that you conduct your half-time review. You will receive a reminder by email when it is time to conduct your follow-up. At least one annual follow-up must be registered in Ladok before the half-time review.

Conduct the follow-up with your supervisor

You and your supervisor jointly conduct the annual follow-up. It should be used to document any important changes from the original individual study plan (plan from admission or the last one reported), including the research plan. The original study plan together with the annual follow-ups should reflect the starting-point and development of the doctoral project.

Contact the director of doctoral education

When your first annual follow-up is due, contact the Director of doctoral education Marie Hasselberg for a meeting to discuss how your first year as a doctoral student at the department has been.
