Information about the doctoral studies handbook at STH

The regulations concerning doctoral studies are extensive with significant administration that must be followed and carried-out as it constitutes an important part of KTH's exercise of public authority. This handbook has been prepared to make things easier for both supervisors and doctoral candidates as well as doctoral education administrators at STH.

Academic level courses are circumscribed by both laws and regulations. On the Swedish Higher Education Authority's website, , there is a link to theHigher Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100) (originated from the Higher Education Act) which stipulate the rules that universities have to abide by. KTH's regulations are based on these rules.

This handbook is structured with loose pages which can be found on STH's intranet and can be downloaded and put into a folder with an index of 10 tabs. The pages are updated when necessary, the intranet always displays the current pages. Print outs of forms and texts from the regulations can be inserted under the appropriate tab if desired. Links can change without our knowledge, please contact the doctoral education administration at if you find any broken links so that the error can be rectified.
