Credit transfer

New PhD students can be enrolled to a reduced PhD study programme. In connection with the enrolment, the PhD Board decides, upon recommendation by the proposed supervisor and the head of department on the following issues:

  • Previously completed PhD courses for which the student is eligible for a credit transfer;
  • Previous knowledge dissemination activities, such as e.g. teaching, for which the student is eligible for a credit transfer;
  • Previous partial or full change of research environment;
  • The student´s level of seniority.

After the approval of the planned PhD project and the PhD student´s qualifications, the PhD student will be enrolled in the Doctoral School to a reduced study programme with a correspondingly reduced time frame.
