What is the difference between programme, study, and project courses?

Programme courses

The programme courses are based on requirements in the PhD Regulations that state that the course component should include scientific theory and research ethics, and are thus mandatory for PhD candidates at the Faculty of Science and Technology. The courses are taught with joint lectures for PhD candidates from all fields of study.

Study courses

The study course is selected on the basis of the field of study and PhD project. The study course is lectured and has a fixed curriculum. The course is taught in small groups and is held on demand.

Project courses

The project course is managed by the PhD candidate's supervisor team and adapted to the individual doctoral project for which the candidate has been admitted.
