Courses within FiH
Individual Study Plan
In connection with admission and registration, an individual study plan (ISP) is established with the supervisor to clarify commitments, goals, outcomes, courses, and other activities in the doctoral education that are credit-giving.
Doctoral students must take at least 30 credits (HP) worth of courses and other activities such as seminars and presenting their own work at at least one international conference during their doctoral education. Doctoral students within the Research School have access to mandatory and elective courses aimed at providing methodological breadth. Most courses are taken during the first two years of the doctoral education and should be conducted at 100% during course time.
For doctoral students admitted to the Research School in the autumn of 2021, 18 credits of mandatory courses are included, as shown in the table below.
The courses are offered by the Doctoral Program in Health Care Science (PUF-V). The program offers courses to provide knowledge of concepts, designs, and analysis methods specifically suited to studying and understanding complex processes related to the health science research field.
Mandatory and elective courses
Doctoral students are automatically admitted to the first courses in semester 1. The first course starts on September 13th, 2021. For the second courses, doctoral students need to apply the previous semester (see course catalog). However, doctoral students in the Research School have priority for courses within PUF-V.
