PhD education

Questions about doctoral education

Questions about the PhD education should normally be addressed directly to the faculty that manages the relevant academic field

At UiB, the academic and administrative responsibilities for the doctoral education essentially lie with the faculties. At many departments, there is an academic chair of doctoral education and an administrative contact person for PhD candidates. In addition, all faculties have administrative PhD coordinators at faculty level.

Questions and enquieries about PhD degrees and doctoral education should be directed to the responsible person at the local department, or to PhD coordinators at the faculties.

If you have a more general question about the doctoral education, or about this PhD website, you are welcome to contact the Division of Research Administration (see contact information below).
