Student LADOK
Here is a brief introduction movie to the Ladok student interface. It is subtitled in English.

Doctoral education involves supervised research. A completed programme of third level studies at Karolinska Institutet awards a degree of the highest international standard. Third level education at Karolinska Institutet entails four years (PhD) or two years (Licentiate) of study.

The Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC) has an excellent level of activity in this respect, with some 180 registered PhD or Licentiate students. We examine and admit approximately eight to ten students each year in 11 different postgraduate fields. Most of our doctoral students have one of CLINTEC's partner clinics as their employer.

CLINTEC has a postgraduate education committee that has admissions meetings twice a term. These meetings give applicants an opportunity to present and discuss their projects. It is then up to the committee to decide whether or not the applicant is to be admitted as a postgraduate.
