We offer PhD courses for those who are accepted as PhD candidates at Malmö University or any other educational institution. In addition to the actual doctoral thesis, the PhD study programme also includes one component course. The content of this course is governed by the general syllabus for the PhD subject area.

Malmö University's postgraduate courses are open to all eligible doctoral students. If there are more applicants than places, priority is given to Malmö University's doctoral students.

  • The specific courses that should be included in the study programme will be decided upon in consultation with the supervisors.
  • There are also compulsory course elements that should be included in all doctoral students' education. Make sure you find out what applies to your particular education.

The courses are organised partly by The Centre for Teaching and Learning (AKL), and partly by the faculties.
