Approximately 120 students are enrolled in the PhD programme at the faculty, and two graduate schools/ PhD research schools have been established. Dissertations are written under faculty supervision.

The nominal length of study for the PhD training is three (3) years full time, and includes a training component of 30 credits. The most important part of the PhD training is an independent research project completed under active supervision and documented through a thesis. An approved thesis will be subjected to public cefence.

PhD candidates with external funding may apply for extended admission (less than full time). The planned progression can not be less than 50%. Admission to the PhD programme is given for a maximum time of 6 years.
