Doctoral Training Principles


Doctoral studies give you an opportunity to study in your field of expertise at an in-depth level. After completing your doctoral studies you are an independent and critically thinking researcher and have contributed with new knowledge

Admission to Swedish PhD programmes is managed by the universities' faculty boards. Applications are made directly to the university.

Applicants must have an academic degree equivalent to a bachelor's degree or higher in the intended field of study. Generally a master's degree is a de facto requirement.

Applicants may also be required to have funding for the entire programme period.
