Malmö University 20 years – celebrate with us

Utskrift från Malmö universitets webbplats www.mah.se

Admission to PhD studies

To become a PhD student you must apply, and be admitted to, a vacant employed position. These are found under vacancies (in swedish). All international PhD positions will be posted in English. 

A majority of PhD students in Sweden are employed by their university. This means that you get a salary as well as paid vacation leave and the right to paid parental leave when you become a PhD student.

No admission- or tuition fees

There are no admission- or tuition fees if you are admitted as a PhD through Malmö University. Alternative financing (if you are not employed) for PhD studies will only be accepted in special circumstances.
