Admission to the PhD programme at the Faculty of Psychology

Admission requirements are based on the University of Bergen’s rules and additional guidelines for the Faculty of Psychology.

Main content

All applicants must contact the relevant department and research group as early as possible in the process to draw up their project description and to clarify who might be relevant supervisor(s). The application must be sent to the relevant department, with the doctoral project description (max. 10 pages). The department will evaluate the application in accordance with the admission requirements at the Faculty.

The final decision on admission is made by the faculty's Research and Researcher Training Committee (FFU).

Only candidates with external funding need apply to the PhD programme. Please note that adequate financing must be secured before applying. There are no application deadlines for the PhD programme. Applicants to research fellow positions at the Faculty will be evaluated for admission as part of the review of their job application, and do not need to send in a separate application form.

Admission requirements to the PhD programme can be found in the programme description.
