As you all know, Norway has opened its doors to international students. Norway has 7 universities and 22 university colleges. All the universities and several university colleges are offering Ph.D. programs.
Therefore, in this video, I will give an overview of PhD application procedure and funding options for international students.
Second Slide: Duration of PhD programme
The minimum duration of a PhD program is 3 years on a full-time basis.
The duration of few PhD programs is over four years. In 4 year PhD programs, 25% of the time is reserved for teaching on courses for master or bachelor students.
I think this is a good opportunity to gain formal training and experience in university teaching along with PhD.
Third Slide: Requirements for a PhD in Norway
1. The student must have completed a Master’s degree with a strong academic record is required. Usually, a two year Masters with a thesis from a recognized institution is mandatory.
2. A Funding Plan: In order to be admitted to a PhD programme, the applicant may need to secure your funding in advance or apply for it alongside your main application.
Financing is an essential requirement for acceptance to a PhD-programme in Norway.
PhD-candidates are usually considered as employees of the admission university/institute in Norway. Most of the applicants receive funding from the University itself.
Fourth Slide: Application Procedure for PhD in Norway
Each institute/university has its own application procedure for doctoral candidates.
Therefore it is recommended to contact them directly for information on how to apply.
I will try to give general procedure followed by most of the Universities.
1. Fill the online application form at the respective University.
2. Submit a Project description, either complete version or preliminary one. If you are allowed to hand in a preliminary project description, a complete version must be made available within six months of admission.
3. Documentation of funding must be provided (If University funds you as a research fellow, mention that). Show the proof, if you have any other form of external funding.
Fifth Slide: Required Documents
Applications must be submitted electronically at the program website.
