PhD studies

Society faces major problems such as unemployment, climate change and refugees. Solving such problems requires people with extensive knowledge combined with the creativity needed to think in new ways. PhD studies will provide you with these tools.

PhD studies mean not only that you will become the foremost expert within one field, but you will also learn to plan, think critically and take responsibility. You will acquire the breadth of knowledge and the skills which go with the subject in general. PhD studies mean that you will work on a research project independently under supervision. You will use and improve both your practical and theoretical skills.

The aim of our PhD studies is to make you an independent researcher who is good at imparting knowledge. You will be ready for complex and advanced work within trade and industry, the public sector, colleges and universities.
