Main content

The University of Bergen (UiB) is a comprehensive university, with our six faculties covering all the classic academic disciplines. Our researchers make exciting discoveries in fields as diverse as neck injuries and organisational life in China to Medieval women in Bergen and use of steroids – along with many other subjects.

Researchers and students at UiB are exploring the fundamental questions, from the origin of the universe through the history of mankind and to the future of Earth.

On this page we present a selection of our PhD candidates. Six graduates from the spring semester 2015, one graduate from each of our faculties. We obviously discussed their research, but also how they dealt with life as a young researcher at UiB.

The photos for this special feature were shot on 28 August 2015, as part of the doctor promotion at the University Aula. The doctor promotion takes place at UiB twice a year, on respectively the last Friday of January and the last Friday of August. This is a grand ceremony where the PhD graduates from the previous semester are celebrated.
