You can apply to doctoral education with external/other types of funding, for example from your current employer. The University makes an assessment regarding the security of the funding for the entire duration of the studies, as well as the applicant's ability to be able to complete the studies with a study rate not lower than 50 %.
The admissions seminar is when the doctoral applicant together with the prospective principal supervisor present the proposed doctoral thesis project. The seminar is expected to last about 45 minutes and is chaired by the head of subject/specialisation coordinator. The doctoral applicant opens by presenting their research plan, for about 10 minutes. The presentation is followed by a discussion about the research plan, such as any problematic aspects; what form the supervision will take; the doctoral student’s expected performance; as well as any ethical aspects and the ethics approvals that will be required. Before the seminar is closed, any matters that may need supplementing before a decision on admission should be identified.
Admission of doctoral students with external/other types of financing usually takes place two times per semester.
