The Course and Programme Committee

The Course and Programme Committee is subordinated to the Committee for Doctoral Education and has the right to decide on certain matters. The committee also acts as a preparatory body in other matters related to doctoral courses and programmes.

Responsibilities and assignments

The overall responsibility of the Course and Program Committee is to prepare decisions regarding KI's doctoral courses and other learning activities for doctoral students as well as to coordinate and follow up on the doctoral programmes' activities.

The Committee has been delegated the right to decide on establishment of syllabi, the distribution of funding for freestanding courses (courses not provided by the doctoral programmes) as well as funding for other learning activities outside the programmes.

The Course and Programme Committee meets 3-4 times per semester.
