2004 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A number of studies have been conducted in Sweden on the issue of postgraduate studies. However, the point of departure has mainly been the view of the postgraduate students. Few investigations have been conducted from the perspective of the supervisors. The main purpose of this study was to present a model for development of a program for assessment of postgraduate studies at Umeå University. The model suggested a questionnaire should be developed and distributed to postgraduate students and supervisors in all the faculties at the university. The questionnaires should focus on selected aspects considered to be essential, in order to reach a deeper understanding of interacting and under laying mechanisms as obstacles for success in postgraduate studies. The selected aspects are: The relation between the postgraduate student and the supervisor, the surrounding working climate, and the information and introduction given to the postgraduate students. Nevertheless, a number of theoretical and practical issues are to be considered before a program for assessment of postgraduate studies is to be implemented. A recommendation is made for how to design such a program.
