Introductory Course for new PhD students (mandatory)
There are many things to prepare for and get acquainted with when starting the PhD programme. Therefore, we conduct a two-day introductory course for new PhD students at each semester start. The next course will be conducted on 2 September + 23 September 2019. You will meet the head of the PhD school and your PhD colleagues, who start at the same time as you, and you will receive a lot of useful information together with a course in scientific integrity.

The first day of the course will be conducted next time on 2 September 2019. On this day you will receive information about the PhD programme at the Faculty of Social Sciences. The course day is concluded with a joint dinner paid by the faculty, so please put the day in your calendar now, if you wish to participate.

The second day of the course will be conducted next time on 23 September 2019 and will include a course in scientific integrity. The aim of this course is to introduce PhD students to a number of basic concepts, principles and norms regarding responsible behavior within research. This will enable PhD students to understand and reflect on ethical issues and requirements according to their research.

When both course days have been completed, you will receive a course certificate with 1.5 ECTS, for which the course is rated.

It is not necessary to register for the course, the PhD administration will send you an invitation and a programme, etc. during the summer.
