We have two application periods for doctoral studies:
- in autumn from 1 September to 20 October 2016 by 15:00
- in spring from 1 March to 18 April 2017 by 15:00.
Please note: in autumn 2016, the Faculty of Social Sciences has its own application period, ending on 15 November at 15:00.
The dates and times are local Finnish time. If your application is successful, your study right begins either on 1 January or 1 August, depending on whether you applied in autumn or spring. It is possible to grant the study right at other times, but we require strong grounds – such as significant research funding requiring a doctoral study right – for making such an exception. Your study right application is addressed to the faculty relevant to your research.
