      Interested in becoming a PhD student?

      How to become a PhD (doctoral) student at the University of Skövde

      Practical information for applicants

      • PhD studies (third cycle courses and study programmes) at the University are, as a rule, funded by employment as a doctoral student (a doctoral position).
      • All vacancies are advertised under available positions.
      • All applicants must complete a formal application procedure: each instance of recruitment involves the appointment of an expert group, which develops a profile of requirements for the position in question and performs an initial assessment of the applicants.
      • At the University of Skövde, there are no scolarships or study grants that can be applied for.
      • To become a PhD student, you must be both admitted to the PhD studies and employed in a position at the University. If you are already employed within industry or the public sector, you have the opportunity to become an externally employed doctoral student (also called Industrial PhD student).
      • Lecturers are also able to conduct their own PhD studies within the framework of their time for skills enhancement.

      Informatics

      Since 1 January 2011, the University of Skövde has been entitled to award research-level degrees (third-cycle qualifications) in Informatics.
