Assessment procedure

Applications will be assessed by an expert selection committee, and applicants will receive the committee’s assessment of, and response to, their application approximately 2 months after the application deadline. 

The assessment of the application comprises an overall assessment of the applicant and his or her qualifications. Particular weight is attached to the project proposal, the grades obtained by the applicant in the study programme, and to whether the applicant, during the study programme or in another manner, has displayed special skills in writing major papers, e.g. a thesis. Please note that for applications to the programme Psychology and Behavioral Sciences, the criteria for assessment are specified here. The final decision on enrolment will be taken by the head of the Graduate School on the basis of the assessed quality of the project and applicant’s ability to successfully complete the PhD project on time.
