      Mandatory seminars

      As part of PhD (third-cycle) studies, PhD students must present their thesis work at two (or three) mandatory seminars. In the case of licentiate degrees, there is no halfway seminar.

      1. Planning seminar – research proposal
      2. Half-term seminar - thesis proposal
      3. Final seminar – thesis manuscript

      For each seminar, the PhD student must produce a written report according to special instructions - see more detailed information under each seminar in the links above.

      Each report is reviewed by a specially appointed reviewer.

      It is the main supervisor who is responsible for appointing and asking the people who will be examiners at the various seminars.

      The examiner must have subject competence in the field to which the degree relates and must not be a member of the doctoral student's supervisor group or otherwise be obnoxious. See Guidelines on bias (In Swedish Riktlinjer om jäv) for more information.

      Other requirements placed on the examiner for the various seminars - see under the respective seminar below.

      The examiner assesses whether the report and presentation are of sufficiently high quality. If not, a new report must be prepared and a new seminar held.

      After each approved assessment, the report is archived in the University's Register together with the protocol from the seminar.

      NOTE! The report will therefore no longer be published in DIVA!

      The forms for the mandatory seminars and pre-examination are described in the Guidelines for examination within third-cycle (PhD) studies (In Swedish Riktlinjer för examination inom utbildning på forskarnivå) and in the document's appendices.

      The protocols for each seminar that the examiner must fill in (forms 5:12, 5:13 and 5:14 respectively) can be found in the Doctoral Student Handbook – Regulations, forms and checklists.
