Course Model

Course Model

The Research School will annually organise at least one national research course in gender research.

The Research School will not offer a complete PhD programme, as most students take required courses at their home institution.

The course model will mainly follow the model that has been developed through previous national and Nordic collaborations:

  • 3 day courses
  • 15-20 participants
  • Alternates between lectures and group work
  • Includes group work in which participants make presentations and comment on prepared papers
  • Participants must complete assigned readings ahead of time
  • Course papers are written after the course and approved by the course teachers

The course model may vary somewhat between courses. The course plan and number of credits for each course must be approved by the Board of the Research School.

It is a goal of the Research School to also organise writing courses, dissertation seminars and meetings for advisers.
