Reporting activity and maintenance

Lund University is obligated to provide information about their doctoral students to Statistics Sweden (Statistiska Centralbyrån). This information is also used in the University annual report. Departments with doctoral students must therefore report on the activity and maintenance of their doctoral students. In the user manual to the doctoral student registry, you will find instructions on how to report. The following document with instructions and relevant dates have been sent to the departments as well.
