Guidelines for financing doctoral courses is a guide on how to apply for funding and report on the allocation of funding for courses on the postgraduate level.
Each course at the postgraduate level must have an established course syllabus in the course database according to a template.
The course syllabus should include:
- The level of the course
- The number of credits
- Specific entry requirements
- The aim of the course
- The forms of teaching
- The pace of study
- Forms of examination
Any revisions to course syllabuses must be reported to the Research Training Committee, which will approve a new version of the course syllabus.
New courses to be offered in future academic years
Proposals for new courses and any applications for funds should be submitted to KUF for approval of the syllabus. Course syllabi are normally approved in connection with a budget decision for the coming academic year at the committee’s ordinary meeting in the spring.
Course providers should add a planned course to the course database with a thorough course syllabus in both English and Swedish.
Courses offered regularly
Course providers should update the course database before budget applications are made by April of the year before the course is to be offered at the latest. The course syllabus can be revised in connection with updates to the course database.
New courses to be offered at short notice
Course providers should notify the director of doctoral studies of the intended doctoral-level course so a course syllabus can be approved. The intended course should be added to the course database with a thorough course syllabus in both English and Swedish.
Applications for funds for courses to be offered at short notice are made to the director of doctoral studies who, in consultation with the chair, takes a decision on the matter.
Adding a course to the course database
Contact the Office for Medicine and Pharmacy to obtain authority to add a course to the course database.
Course evaluation and course report
After each course at the postgraduate level, a course evaluation must be offered to all participants. The evaluation results must be presented in a course report published in the course database and fed back at the start of the course during the next session.
The purpose of the course report is to briefly summarise and evaluate the students' views from the course evaluation and to supplement these with the course responsible's/teacher's reflections. The course report should also describe the ideas for improvement that have been raised and the actions that will be taken. A course report does not need to be lengthy (maximum about one page).
