PhD Studies

Curious about our research?

All our PhD students are paid employees. This means that to become a PhD student, you should apply for a PhD position and also apply for admission to PhD studies.


PhD positions are advertised when funding is available, both at it.uu.se and uu.se. A Ph.D. position is limited to five years of full time. The education covers 240 credits, which corresponds to four years of full time studies and research. In addition to that, it usually includes also one year of teaching.


PhD Studies Programme

General information on Ph.D. studies at Uppsala University can be found at funding PhD studies, forms for admission, study plan etc as well as the life as a PhD student.

In 2010 the department of IT made an evaluation of its doctoral education (in Swedish).

In case you have any questions, please contact our director of studies, Wang Yi
