PhD Admission Procedure
The vast majority of our PhD students have successfully applied for an open PhD position, which gives rise to a salaried employment. Note that scholarships/stipends as well as employment in industry or at another university are special cases. Open PhD positions will be advertised whenever funding is available, which can be any time of the year: the advertisements are posted at it.uu.se and uu.se.
If you are offered the PhD position you applied for, then you need to fill in the following two documents (both forms are available at the faculty website) in cooperation with the recruiting supervisors, in order to apply for actual admission to the PhD programme:
- Application for admission
- Individual study plan
Give these two documents, together with a copy of your degree/certificate/diploma from a basic degree or higher education, to Ulrika Andersson or Anna-Lena Forsberg. They will hand all these documents, together with the employment contract they prepare, to the Head of Department, who will take the final decision whether or not to admit the PhD applicant.
