  • Other studies: 40 ECTS credits

  • DPLAOPS Study and Supervision Plan
  • DPLASEM Research Seminar, Doctoral Programme in Language Studies, 5–10 ECTS credits
  • DPLAETH Research Ethics, 1–5 ECTS credits

In addition to these mandatory studies, the student will take free choice studies advancing his/her research and scientific expertise as specified in his/her personal study plan. These other studies may include joint doctoral studies offered by the university’s Doctoral School, studies completed in other universities, activities in academic organisations, publishing, teaching, taking part in conferences, and other academic activities as specified in the student’s personal study plan.

B. Licentiate of Philosophy

The expected duration of studies for the licentiate degree is two and a half years. The licentiate degree requires 140 ECTS credits, but these credits count towards the doctoral degree if the student continues to study. The licentiate degree consists of the following:
