Identify a mentor

Who can be a Mentor?

A person who:

  • Can advise you in any aspect of your personal and professional development
  • Is not directly involved in your research project
  • Is not your family member

So choose someone you trust to give you honest and constructive advice.

Send an email to the Doctoral eduction Administrator - your mentor's name and e-mail address.

Take the introduction course

Doctoral education begins with a compulsory centrally-arranged introduction course.

We strongly recommend you sign up as soon as possible, as the earlier you do it, the more you’ll get out of it.

  1. Apply for the introductíon course
  2. Complete two web courses before you participate in the oral lecture
  3. Participate in the oral lecture
  4. Your participation is registered in Ladok

No higher education credits are awarded for the Introduction course.
