PhD completion seminar

The PhD completion seminars are offered to PhD candidates at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences to support them in their final stage of the PhD. At this seminar you will get help and practical tips on writing the popular scientific summary and preparing for and executing the trial lecture and defence.  

The seminars have limited intake capacity, and priority will be given to PhD candidates who have already submitted their thesis.
