General study syllabus (study plan)

General syllabus/study plan for research subjects at ISY (information only available in Swedish so far).

Individual study plan

When admitted to PhD studies you need to create an individual study plan (and keep it updated during the study period). In consultation with your main supervisor - write an individual study plan (ISP) and fill in an annex, forms for ISP and annex (forms at the faculty page).

Content etc. is described in the Study Handbook/Guide for PhD studies (LiTH) and in the Higher Education ordinance in Sweden.
More info about the individual study plan in section 5.3 of the Study Guide.
