Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The project is directed to doctoral students in Urban and Regional Studies, and is done as project work. The work should contain elements such as goal formulation, data gathering, presentation and discussion or analysis of results.  An example of a relevant project can be a research project performed for an agency or a company and presented in a user-friendly report.

The project should normally be separate from the student’s doctoral thesis work. If the project work and the thesis work overlap, it should be clearly explained. The project can be done in cooperation with others. If so, the contribution of the student and of co-workers should be clearly described. The project work should equal 120 hours of fulltime work. Overlaps with doctoral work and work done by other contributors to the project should not be included.

Intended learning outcomes *

The aim of the course is to give deeper insights in topics of relevance for urban and regional studies.
