PhD Studies

Would you like to continue your studies at doctoral level? Uppsala University regards the education and supervision of  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students as one of the most significant and valuable activities at the university. PhD positions provide students with a unique opportunity to cultivate their interest in a particular area of research and make an important contribution to the development of new knowledge. Students are required to undertake a significant and original thesis project that is the result of four years of full-time study and supervised research training. Doctoral degrees are offered in most academic areas at the university.

Closing ceremonies and graduation events

At the end of each academic year there is a summer closing ceremony for Master's students who are completing their studies. Individual Master's programmes and/or university departments may also arrange graduation events.
