About the seminars
The overall theme of the seminars is “Education and communication”, but the seminars deal with different subjects, theories and methods.
Some seminars are mandatory:
- Research proposal seminars are held in the research environment to which the doctoral student belongs. On this occasion, the doctoral student gives a brief oral presentation of his or her research proposal, whereafter another doctoral student (if there is one in the review group) and a researcher from the research environment discuss the content of the proposal, giving their opinions and providing guidance on how to proceed.
- During the process of writing the licentiate/doctoral thesis, the doctoral student must present the merits of the thesis at one or two public seminars, depending on the type of degree pursued: a mid-way seminar (doctoral degree) and a final seminar (licentiate and doctoral degrees). The public seminars are led by an external reviewer.
