Financing of studies at doctoral level

General information concerning financing and resource management regarding doctoral students

Studies at doctoral level at Halmstad University are normally financed via employment, either at Halmstad University (primarily via a doctoral studentship) or by another employer(external employment). The financing or funding of doctoral studies can also, in exceptional cases, be via scholarships from external financiers or, if student financing can be guaranteed
throughout the entire education period, via a retirement pension. The financing of doctoralstudies by other means is not allowed upon admission to a doctoral education at Halmstad University.

In the cases of funding via scholarships or within the framework of external employment, the financial contribution received by the doctoral student shall correspond to the salary paid to a doctoral student at Halmstad University after tax.

Irrespective of which funding source is used, the University must assess whether there are financial possibilities for admission as well as in agreement with the Higher Education Ordinance, assess that the required funding is guaranteed throughout the entire education period, and that the required supervisory resources and acceptable study conditions are fully
available. In all cases, the undertaken education must be completed within four years in the case of a licentiate degree and eight years in the case of a doctoral degree.
