The programme director (PD) has, upon delegation from the Head of Department or the Committee for Higher Education, a KI-overall responsibility for the ongoing work on the programme, including responsibility for quality and coordination of programme courses. The PD assignment also includes preparing decisions regarding the distribution of educational assignments for courses within programmes so that the educational assignments are distributed to the department that has the best conditions to perform the assignment with high quality and good connections to research.

Competence requirements

A PD must have a teaching position at KI and be active in both research and teaching.

In addition to holding a teaching position, the PD must meet requirements for a docent at KI with pedagogical competence corresponding to at least 10 weeks of course work and have experience from management within education at first cycle or second cycle (eg assignments as a course coordinator).

A PD for programmes leading to a professional degree must also have relevant professional competence.

If the person appointed as PD does not fulfil the competence requirements, the Head of Department is responsible for designing a plan for how this can be achieved within the next 12 months.

Decision on programme director

A PD for programmes where programme responsibility has been delegated to the department is appointed by the Head of Department. The PD for programmes where the Committee for Higher Education is responsible for the programme is appointed by the committee. One PD is appointed for first cycle and second cycle programmes within the same subject area and programme organisation.  First cycle programmes and second cycle programmes within the same main subject area and the same programme organization have one PD. In cases where first cycle programmes and second cycle programmes comprise more than 1 000 full time annual performance equivalents, one PD may be appointed for first cycle programmes and one for second cycle programmes.
