Before half-time control, licentiate seminar or dissertation at NVS

Denna sida på svenska

Here we remind of some practical things and the routines at the department of NVS.

Before half-time control

Half-time control should occur two years after registration to PhD studies, when studying on full time.

Before half-time control, fill in the NVS half time check list and send it to the FoU member at your division at least 5 weeks before the planned half-time control for approval (then to Catarina Cleveson for filing). Attach a list from LADOK where the manditory courses are marked.

Forward the documents to the half time committée 3 weeks before the half time control.

Guide lines for half-time control and what the application should contain, please read the KI central pages.

Please send details of your half-time control to the NVS Communication officer, for listing the event on KI Calender and announcement within the department. Title, date and time, together with name of supervisors and of the board members.

Before the defence or licentiate seminar

Reservation of date for defence/licentiate seminar

Contact Catarina Cleveson, doctoral education coordinator at NVS, well in advance to make sure that your choice of date and time will not collide with someone else's dissertation within the same area of research.

Signing of application

Contact Erik Sundström, Director of doctoral education, well in advance to check that the courses are completed and for signing the application. Thereafter, contact the Head of department administrator Åsa Borglund regarding signature by the Head of department, before the application is submitted to the Dissertation Committee. 

Practical arrangements

For reservations of venue and other practical arrangements for the examination day, contact the division administrator to find out what routines apply to your division.

Please, send one copy of your licentiate thesis or doctoral thesis to Catarina Cleveson. Internal postal address: NVS, institutionsledning, Alfred Nobels Allé 23, flygel D3.


Please send your "dissertation notice" =spikblad to the NVS Communication officer, for listing of event on KI Calender and further announcement at the department and KI.
