My First Course as a PhD Student
So, I started my PhD in January. I came to Sweden on 1st February. While I was applying for the position, I thought that as Sweden is in Europe so there will only be research work without any course work but after coming here I got to know that I need to complete some course work also. There are 2 stages after an MS in Sweden. First is a Licentiate degree spanning over 2 years and after the Licentiate degree 2 more years are required to complete the PhD. The credits required for Licentiate and Doctoral degrees are as follows:
After a couple of weeks in Sweden, I got to know that there is a compulsory course which has already started so I sent an email to the instructor and luckily got in. The course has 3 modules which are as follows:
Theory of Science
Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
Currently we are on the second module, it’s good so far. Let’s see how it goes. On the research part, I am currently going through the literature. I think I will write about the literature review soon. That’s it for now, See you later.
