Learning outcomes

The Doctoral candidate will be able to make and actually deliver an international conference presentation of scholarly caliber including a written presentation and an oral presentation in a real-life situation. The presentation will show profound understanding on the topic of the presentation, capability to creative research design, in-depth analytical skills, and the ability to choose the most relevant aspects from the literature and/or analysed research results.


The Doctoral candidate will participate an international academic conference suitable for his/her own research topic, write a presentation according to the guidelines of the conference and present it in the conference. Participation is required and the number of credits depend on the workload. An oral presentation with full conference paper is the aim and qualifying for this gives you 6 credits.

Participation a conference without any presentation is not enough to pass the course.
