PhD Student handbook

After a long time of work the PhD student handbook for PhD students at our faculty is finished. We hope that our handbook can make PhD life a bit easier by providing basic information about living in Sweden, housing, administration, rules and regulations, your thesis, etc.

You can download it here: 2018-05-28_PhD handbook

Please help us to spread it among PhD students at S-fak.
Please feel free to provide us with any input from your side. We will have a revision of the document on an annual basis.

Besides the handbook, you can find relevant information regarding PhD studies at this page: (English, Swedish)
