Report activity and means of support

All doctoral students are required to report activity and means of support twice a year to the administration of doctoral education at PHS. When the report is due, you will receive a reminder from the administration at PHS.

The activities and financing information are registered in Ladok and the forms are saved in your doctoral file at the administrative office.

How to estimate and what to include in ‘activity’

'Activity' refers to the percentage of time you have devoted to your doctoral education/research project. Included is also participation in doctoral courses, seminar series, congresses, project work in your spare time, etc. Teaching or other departmental duties should not be included in the report.

Please note that any activities you have been engaged in, that are not financed, should also be reported and should be entered as "ÖVR".

An example of how to estimate activity in percentage:

10% activity = 4 hours/week
25% activity = 10 hours/week
50% activity = 20 hours/week
75% activity = 30 hours/week
100% activity = 40 hours/week

What to include in ‘means of support’

'Means of support' refers to the financing of your doctoral studies. It does not refer to salary you have earned for other work, for example being a hospital physician in parallel with your doctoral studies. However, a clinical doctoral project can constitute both ordinary clinical work and doctoral studies at the same time.
