Two-Day Course in PhD Supervision


The Graduate School of Social Sciences and the PhD School of the Faculty of Law will be providing a course in PhD supervision.

All PhD supervisors from the two faculties are most welcome to participate in the course.


The course will address themes such as the relationship between the supervisor and the PhD candidate, process-focused supervision and how to handle different phases of the PhD proces, supervisor roles, communication and feedback techniques, collaborating with colleagues, and rules and new trends and dilemmas in doctoral education.

The goals of the course are that the participants will:

  • understand the complexities involved in PhD supervision.
  • acquire formal and process-related knowledge about PhD supervision.
  • be able to transfer knowledge of the course to their own supervisory practices.
  • be in a position to reflect on their own supervising practices in the future.
