Nailed theses at KI library

The Doctoral programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) invites all doctoral students at KI our Kappa seminars. The seminars are intended for doctoral students who plan to defend their theses within 3–6 months. 

The seminars can help you who are in the process of writing your kappa/cover story:

  • to put your thesis in a broader conceptual perspective
  • clarify how the articles forming the thesis relate to one another in this broader context
  • and elaborate on the content and organisation of the kappa.

The kappa seminars is a mix of plenary sessions, individual assignments, and group work, all being focused on your own thesis (kappa).

The participants are encouraged to reflect on their own work and they must provide other course participants with peer review at several occasions. The seminars are held in English. Participation to all face-to-face sessions is compulsory and the seminar is the equivalent on 1 week of full-time work.
