PhD related policy
Temporary teaching and research staff are represented at the UiA Board. At Faculty level, each of the four specializations has its own PhD committee with at least one member representing the PhD candidates. From these representatives, one from each campus is elected to the Faculty's Research Education Committee (FU).
