Submission of syllabus

Deadlines related to doctoral courses.

Adapting a course

Adapting the course offerings to demand. We are trying to better meet the needs of both doctoral students and post docs for courses by looking into both financing and teacher capacity. To enable us to do this, we will ask course providers to reply to a short survey in case they have had applicants (KI doctoral students and postdocs) that meet the selection criteria for their course, but whom they have not been able to offer a course place. The survey will be sent separately to those stated as course responsible or contact person in the course catalogues for autumn 2019 and spring 2020.

Cancelling a course

A few planned courses are cancelled each semester, mostly due to few applicants. If you have few applicants when the course catalogue has closed for application, the first step can be to consider advertising the course further on the web site for vacancies, if you estimate that you will have enough applicants by prolonging the application period. Send an email to

If a decision is taken (in dialogue with the funding doctoral programme) to cancel a course, please do the following: 1. Inform the students asap 2. Inform the Evaluation Unit so that they will not plan the evaluation of the course 3. Inform the Ladok administrator at you department who will remove the admitted students from the course occasion in Ladok and then, in her/his turn, contact the Ladok support to have the course occasion in Ladok cancelled.
