A day about challenges with widening participation to doctoral education

According to the Higher Education Act, all higher education institutions are required to actively work on widening access and participation of students at all levels, including doctoral education. However, the challenges of widening access and participation in doctoral education differ from those in other educational contexts.

All member institutions of the Include Network are invited to a day to discuss challenges and strengthen knowledge about widening participation in doctoral education. KI is hosting the event, and all interested staff, doctoral candidates, and students at KI are welcome to register.

Practical Information

  • The program will be conducted in Swedish, with the opportunity to ask questions in English.
  • All interested staff, doctoral candidates, and students at KI are welcome to register via Include’s website. 
  • Limited number of participants.
  • On-site participants will be provided with lunch and refreshments.

KI’s Work on Widening Participation 

For KI, widening participation are both quality and equity issues. Diverse student backgrounds contribute additional perspectives and experiences that benefit educational programs. Additionally, publicly funded education should be accessible to the population on equal terms. Learn more about KI’s efforts in widening access and participation (Link to action plan).
