PhD Programme in Science
The PhD-program in Science consists of 180 ECTS, where 30 ECTS is the instruction component and 150 ECTS is the thesis (research project) itself. The trial lecture and public defence are counted as parts of the thesis.
The thesis can be a monograph or a collection of several smaller research papers - an anthology. Such collections must have a connection between the various components, and the connection must be explained in a summary.
For candidates with projects relating to didactics, the instruction component must containt courses equivalent to 30 ECTS, comprising 20-27 ECTS in mathematics and natural science and/or subject didactics, 3-6 ECTS in philosophy of science and ethics, and if desired, 4-7 ECTS in transferable skills.
It is expected that all candidates present their research project and their work at conferences and/or at seminars. Presentations such as a lecture or a poster will not be credited with ECTS.
