More info

Who can apply to the doctoral courses?

The courses are mainly for doctoral students at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Umeå University. Other applicants may, however, have access to the courses, regardless of location. Please note, however, that participants who do not belong to the Faculty of Science and Technology will be billed for the course fee. For more information about this, contact Lisa Hed.

Admission and selection

Admission procedure starts immediately after the deadline of the application. The following may happen:

If the course is full, notification closes. A selection is made among the applicants from the date of admission to postgraduate studies, if the student has applied for the course earlier and more. Notification / Reserves message is sent by email to applicants shortly after the application deadline. Applicants are asked to confirm their course placement via "My Pages". If this does not happen before the expiration date, the location will be the next person in the reserve list.

If the course is not full, the application period will be extended. Information on new deadlines is given on the application page. If the number of applicants is not enough, the course is set.

Note that when submitting your application you should provide contact details of your supervisor. He/she then needs to approve that you attend the course before you can be admitted to the course.

After completing the course

After completing your course, you will receive a certificate sent to you via the university's internal post. If you want to get the score reported in LADOK, you will show this certificate to an administrator at your institution. For questions concerning certificates contact Lisa Hed.
