Why do we ask for permission from your supervisor and/or head of clinic?

We know you are committed to the opportunities offered by this school. But as the number of positions is limited, we must be certain that the people primary responsible for your research training support you to spend time away from the lab and/or clinic.

Please note that participation in school activities is mandatory. If you are accepted to the school, you will be expected to participate in all activities.

However, if you think that you have taken a course already which matches a course in the School, you may be credited for that course instead. Contact the School for more information.

Costs covered by the School are: travel arrangements, per Diem, and tuition fees (where relevant).
In compliance with SRC regulation, salaries cannot be paid by the School.

For more information, please email to info[at]researchschool.nu or jan.alvar.lindencrona{at]ki.se or use the "Contact us" service.
