PhD candidates receive formal training and supervision, providing them with broad and deep scientific knowledge that develops the competence to undertake independent research. PhD candidates attain scientific expertise through independent, supervised research work, leading to a scientific dissertation in Mathematics Education. The research work and dissertation must be of international standard.
After satisfactory completion of their degree, PhD candidates shall have developed a high level of scientific competence in Mathematics Education. Candidates shall have acquired wide academic knowledge in Mathematics Education and specialized knowledge within a main area in Mathematics Education.
Usually, work with the dissertation is done under the supervision of two highly qualified scholars in the field. Teaching in the course part comprises lectures, seminars and discussions led by candidates or course teachers. In most of the courses, the assessment is based on an essay that builds on the literature in the course combined with the PhD candidate’s own research topic. More information about the courses can be found in the course descriptions. If several courses are offered during the same semester, the programme will be coordinated. Parts of the coursework component can be completed at other institutions in Norway or abroad, as agreed by the Faculty/PhD Committee.
Admission to the specialisation in Mathematics Education requires knowledge of both Mathematics and Mathematics Education.
The requirement can be satisfied with one of the following alternatives:
Applicants with a master’s degree in other areas than Mathematics Education may be required to fulfill additional requirements, in which case a conditional offer of admission will be made.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
