The purpose of the course is to provide a deeper understanding of doctoral supervision in relation to the prerequisites and conditions of third-cycle programmes and the phases of the research process. The course includes central themes such as the objectives of third-cycle programmes, content and form, as well as local, national, and international regulations. Study cultures and different dimensions of power relationships in connection to supervision are discussed. The course also problematises supervision styles, situations, and the role of the supervisor, as well as different phases of the research process such as planning, critical thinking, and evaluation and communication of research results. The course comprises lectures, group discussions, literature seminars, and other activities.
