DEADILE FOR APPLYING: 20 JUNE 2012 - 4PM (Italian time)

Eligibility applicants: candidates, regardless of gender, age and nationality, who hold a relevant MA degree, or who expect to complete their degree by September 28, 2012.

Applications must include a CV, a research proposal and degree certificates.  For some tips on how to write a research proposal, click here. Consult the respective call for a complete list of documents to be included in your application.

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:

  1. The Admissions Committee will asses all applications and produce a short-list of candidates who will go on to step 2.
  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.
  3. 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. To prepare for this test you may want to read : Piergiorgio Corbetta "Metodologia e tecniche della ricerca sociale", Bologna, Il Mulino, English edition: "Social Research: Theory, Methods and Techniques", London, Sage
