Hovedinnhold

Kurs i overførbare ferdigheiter er ein obligatorisk del av opplæringsdelen i forskarutdanninga ved Det humanistiske fakultet (inkludert vitskaplege ph.d.-stipendiatar med tilsetting ved Griegakademiet - KMD). Kursa er av ein slik karakter at alle ph.d.-kandidatar ved fakultetet skal ha nytte av dei. Kursa har begrensa kapasitet, og eigne kandidatar har prirotet.

Det humanistiske fakultetet tilbyr kvart år ulike typar kurs i overførbare ferdigheiter. Alle kursa er på 5 studiepoeng, men det varierer på kva tidspunkt i utdanningsløpet dei vil gi best utbytte. Kurstilbodet vil også kunne variere frå år til år.

Ph.d.-kandidatane kan ta slike kurs ved andre institusjonar, men desse kursa må godkjennast av fakuletets Forsking- og forskarutdanningsutval (FFU). Slik godkjenning kan bli gitt etter tilråding frå FFU ved kandidaten si grunneining.
