As all doctoral programmes are taught in English, proof of fluency in that language is a prerequisite for admission. We require at least C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) or equivalent. Failing a certificate of knowledge of English language, during the oral examination the knowledge of English will be tested.
Scholarships: The School makes available a number of fully-funded three-year scholarships. In general, all our doctoral students are supported by a scholarship. Currently the School does not charge an admission fee.
Application: The application must be submitted online.
Admission procedures: The procedure consists of two steps and a third step for the doctoral Programme in Sociology and Social Research:
- The Admissions Committee will asses all applications and produce a short-list of candidates who will go on to step 2.
- The second step consists of a roughly thirty minute interview in English that will focus mainly on your research proposal and your knowledge of the field.
- If you are applying for the doctoral programme in Sociology and Social Research, you will, in addition, be asked to sit a multiple choice exam.
