Courses in doctoral studies.

The requirments for a PhD in physics, theoretical physics or chemical physics include a cours part comprising 60 credits and a thesis of 180 credits. A required intermediate step towards the Phd is the licentiate exam comprising 120 credits, with a course part of 30-60 credits and a thesis of at least 60 credits. This applies to students admitted after September 1, 2009 (and to some of the students admitted after July 1, 2007). Students admitted before that date needs to include a course part of at least 60 credits in their PhD exam.

Please note: courses completed before admission to the doctoral studies can be included in the PhD only if they are not included in the courses claimed to meet the qualification criteria for doctoral studies.

The course part inclues a block of recommended courses, which should be achieved before the licentiate exam. The recommended courses are:

For doctoral studies in physics, theoretical phycis and experimental chemical physics 30 credits among the following courses must be fulfilled:

FK8001 Analytical Mechanics, 7,5 credits
FK8003 Electrodynamics I, 7,5 credits
FK8005 Mathematical Methods in Physics, 7,5 credits
FK8007 Quantum Mechanics III, 7,5 credits
FK8008 Statistical Physics I, 7,5 credits
One course in an experimental field at advanced level, 7,5 credits

For doctoral studies in theoretical chemical physics:

FK7009 Quantum Chemistry, 15 credits + courses of together 15 credits decided by person appointed by the Head of the Department.

For doctoral studies in medical radiation physics:

Courses decided by person appointed by the Head of the Department.

 

Note: Some of the recommended courses might be finished before admittance to doctorial studies. However, the requirement of in total 60 credits worht of courses is not correspondingly reduced if the courses have been included in order to meet the admittance requirementes for doctorial studies.

For students admitted before September 1, 2008 (in some cases July 1, 2007) the following courses (what used to be defined as "basblocket" in the graduate school) should normally be included in the PhD:


FK8001 Analytical Mechanics, 7,5 credits
FK8003 Electrodynamics I, 7,5 credits
FK8005 Mathematical Methods in Physics, 7,5 credits
FK8007 Quantum Mechanics III, 7,5 credits
FK8008 Statistical Physics I, 7,5 credits
FK3004 Condensed Matter Physics I, 7,5 credits
