PhD studies consist of a course component and a thesis component. Many of the courses are based on individual work and demand close co-operation with the supervisor. Some subject courses and all general courses will have contact meetings. Not all the general courses will be offered in English every year. PhD students must participate in the PhD seminars throughout their studies. The official full-time study period of PhD studies is four years.
One of the most important elments of the course component are the seminars, running throughout the four year study period. During these seminars the students will be able to present papers and function as examiners for their fellow students. Individual studies form an important part of the learning experience.
The Linguistics study programme (2017/2018 academic year) is available here.
