Individual study plan

The individual study plan (ISP) is an agreement between the doctoral student, all supervisors, the director of studies and the head of department about the contents of the student's education. The syllabus is established when the department has admitted a student to a doctoral position.

The ISP is to be filled out by the doctoral student and the supervisor and signed by all parties concerned ahead of the admission. The ISP is to be reviewed at least once a year. If there is a departure in the programme from the original syllabus, the sections concerned shall be revised. ISP shows which courses are included in the education, other knowledge tests, the supervisors' role and the time schedules and funding plans.

Follow up

The individual study plan must be followed up by the Institute at least once per year. Participating at the follow up are the PhD student, supervisor and if possible the co-supervisor and mentor.

The follow up takes the form of a structured discourse about how the project and the PhD student has developed during the year. Is the timeline being followed? Are more courses required? Does the project need access to other competence? How does the PhD student's career plan look?

If there are discrepancies with the individual study plan then it must be updated. Check that the information reported i Ladok is correct.

The follow up must be documented on a special form. This is to be signed by the PhD student and the supervisor and is reviewed by the Head of studies at the Institute. The original document will be sent to the Sahlgrenska Academy administration for archiving.

The follow up is a requirement for continued financing of the PhD students with funding from the faculty of Sahlgrenska Academy.
