Why should I pay the fee to LDK?
Swedish higher education institutions rely on collegial management and student influence. Decisions about how the university should be managed – quality assurance, structures for implementation and development – are decided by elected members of the staff and the students. LDK will then work as a forum where doctoral student can exchange ideas and thoughts to improve the doctoral program. Also, you will gain access to the doctoral student’s ombudsman (DOMB) who works full-time with issues concerning doctoral students and it is to the ombudsman you turn to with whatever questions you might have concerning your department and your research.
