Faculty Research School - Doctoral (Third-Cycle) Education

All departments at the Faculty provide doctoral (third-cycle) education – where cross-collaboration and the cross-utilisation of the Faculty’s broad spectrum of competence and expertise - in all the arts - are enabled and facilitated through our Faculty Research School.

The Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) and the Academy of Music and Drama (HSM) also pursue research collaboration at the Centre for Education Science and Teacher Resesarch (CUL) - which is a University Research School.

Faculty Seminar Series on Research

Welcome to the Faculty Seminar Series, a series of seminars that addresses research themes, promotes the development of research, assesses research applications and facilitates cross-disciplinary collaborations. This seminar programme is created in dialogue with the Faculty Research School and Faculty researchers. The seminars are announced in the Faculty's web calender.

The Faculty Seminar Series is primarily intended for researchers and research students, but is also open to all.

Regulation, financing and responsibility

Department Advisory Councils (institutionsråd) decide on goals, strategies and the budget for research at their department. (There is a Department Advisory Council at each department.)

Each department also has a Research Advisory Council (forskningsråd) that prepares and drafts all the Head of Department decisions that are related to research and doctoral (third-cycle) education.

The Faculty Board (fakultetsstyrelsen) has the overall responsibility for the quality, regulation, and strategic planning of research, doctoral (third-cycle) education, collaboration and outreach efforts, as well as of undergraduate (first-cycle) and master’s (second-cycle) education at the Faculty. The Faculty Board decides on goals and strategies for research at the Faculty, which also includes collaborative and outreach efforts. It also allocates funding to the different activities pursued.

It is also the Faculty Board who acts as the ‘sender’ in the case of statements of opinion and responses to proposal drafts related to research and doctoral (third-cycle) education.

The Head of Department’s Council (prefektrådet) is an advisory body for the Dean. Proposals related to research and doctoral (third-cycle) education that are to be addressed in the Faculty Board (including proposals for how government funding is to be allocated) are discussed and drafted here.

The Advisory Research Committee (forskningsberedning (FOB)) is the body that prepares and drafts research matters for the Faculty Board, the Head of Departments’ Council and the Faculty Management Group.

This work includes national and international collaboration efforts with research institutions and stakeholders – in those instances where a Faculty-wide perspective is regarded essential.

The Research Advisor, who you can find at the Faculty Office, provides administrative support to researchers at the Faculty, with regard to research applications, for example. The Research Advisor is also the Secretary of the Advisory Research Committee.

The Faculty Office provides support to the Faculty Board, the Head of Departments’ Council and the Faculty Management Group – with regard to communication, human resources, finances and other administration. The Faculty Office also coordinates the work related to the follow-up and evaluation of the quality of research (and education).
