Introductory days

At the start of the semester introductory seminars are organised for all newly admitted doctoral students. A two-day seminar is organised every year in August-September. A lighter one-day version of the seminar is organised every year in January-February for doctoral students admitted in the autumn application round.

During the seminar doctoral students receive information concerning

  • the general structure of doctoral studies
  • different course organisers
  • national and international networks
  • funding possibilities
  • services provided by the library

The seminar is an opportunity for new doctoral students to get to know each other, as well as representatives from the academic and administrative staff at Hanken. In conjunction with the seminars, a season kick-off is organised where also existing PhD students are welcome.

Participants will be informed by e-mail. Material from the seminar will be available at the seminar.
