In order to ensure that KI’s doctoral supervisors are familiar with the latest rules for doctoral education at KI, as of 1 April 2016 all principal supervisors must have passed the web course for doctoral supervisors within 5 years of a new student admission.

The goal is that you:

  • are familiar with the rules that regulate doctoral education at KI.
  • are familiar with the organization for doctoral education at KI
  • know where you can find more information about doctoral education at KI and about supervision.

Content

The Web course is divided into nine sections and they ends questions to answer. Each section begins with a brief presentation of texts with reference to the relevant rules and laws, administrative documents and other relevant literature in the form of links. All questions are so-called multiple-choice; more than one answer (and sometimes none) can be correct.

You can take the tests an unlimited number of times.The test questions are obtained randomly from a question bank which means that new questions may appear for each new try.
