Course credits

Every PhD student is required to follow courses worth of 30 ECTS. Any course listed in our list of PhD courses is automatically approved as a PhD course.

You can also get credit for following PhD courses at other research institutions, or by taking a reading course. Moreover, you can get course credit by following summer schools and even certain conferences. To claim credit for such an activity you need to fill a form.

Printing the PhD thesis

The department prints a number of copies (usually 20) of each PhD thesis. One of these will be kept by the department, and one will be kept at the Royal Library. The rest can be distributed to committee members, colleagues, friends, and family.
