Specifications and requirements for the lecture

  • The topic is proposed by the PhD cand. and supervisor and approved by the department.
  • The department appoints a committee of two members who assess the seminar/lecture. The committee sends the result of the assessment to the department.
  • The criteria for seminars/lectures on self-selected subjects are the same as for a trial lecture on a given topic. The purpose of the lecture is to give the PhD candidate an opportunity to document their ability to disseminate research-based knowledge. The lecture should normally be structured so that it can be followed by an audience with previous knowledge one could expect to find among master's students in the field of study. Both academic content and the ability to disseminate are emphasised in the assessment of the trial lecture.
  • The topic of the given subject must not be obtained from the key issues in the PhD thesis.
