From admission to doctoral degree

A postgraduate education contains many steps from admission to a dissertation and finally receiving your doctorate.

On these pages we have gathered information from the time you begin your days as a PhD student at the Faculty of Science until you defend your thesis at your dissertation and can titulate yourself doctor.

Aims of third-cycle education

The Faculty of Science follows the objectives stated in the Qualifications Ordinance of the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance, with the additional aim that “Third-cycle education shall prepare third-cycle students for future activities both within and outside of the higher education sector.” The aims of third-cycle education are stated in the five subject plans adopted by the Faculty Board.
