Doctoral studies involve four years of full-time study, which include a number of courses and a doctoral thesis. Besides acquiring in-depth knowledge of a field of study, you will also cultivate your critical and analytical thinking. During your studies, you get to solve problems independently as you prepare for a professional career within academia, or the business or public sector. To be admitted to doctoral studies you are also required to have guaranteed financing for the entire study period trough a doctoral student position.
