Doctoral education involves four years of full-time study, which includes a number of courses and a thesis. Besides acquiring in-depth knowledge of a field of study, you will also cultivate your critical and analytical thinking.
If you are interested in commencing doctoral education you should first contact the department that conducts education and research in your field of interest. The Admissions Code for doctoral education contains the rules that Umeå University adheres to for application, qualification and selection. More information can be found in the Faculty Handbook for PhD Education and in the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education's Handbook for Postgraduate Students.
