Notification of your licentiate seminar

A licentiate degree may be taken after the equivalent of two years' full-time third-cycle studies.

Notification of a licentiate seminar is to be submitted to the director of third-cycle studies at your department (FUS) or the official at the department.

Notification of a licentiate seminar must include:

  • By the chair professor: Proposal of two members, one of whom is an external expert. Both of them must be docents or have a higher rank. Both experts must have been contacted and accepted the assignment in connection with notification of the licentiate seminar. The chair professor normally chairs the seminar. If the chair professor is your principal or assistant supervisor, the internal member of the examining committee is to be the chair. The chair must be a docent or have a higher rank.
  • By your principal supervisor: Brief description of the various subprojects and a specification of your contribution to the thesis project. If a project has also been used as part of another licentiate or doctoral thesis, the contributions of the various authors shall be described in detail. A project may be used at no more than two public defences, provided that the contributions of all doctoral students can be substantiated. If a project is used as part of a licentiate thesis and later another student’s doctoral thesis, it cannot be used as part of another student’s doctoral or licentiate thesis.
  • An excerpt from Ladok (UT90) showing all third-cycle courses and modules that you have completed.
  • Your individual study plan (including all individual study plans revised during your third-cycle studies).
  • Your signed consent form for electronic publication (voluntary).
  • Three collated copies of the subprojects included in your thesis, or a manuscript of an entire monograph thesis.
  • A conflict-of-interest certificate signed by all supervisors, you, the chair professor and FUS.
