Do you plan to finance your studies with a personal scholarship? SLU accepts funding through scholarships until such a date when, according to the individual study plan, the remaining period of study corresponds to three years of full-time study before the award of a doctorate.
There are restrictions on the types of scholarships that are accepted, for more information please read the SLU admission regulations for doctoral education. Swedish universities do not charge for tuition, but SLU requires applicants to have a certain amount of money per month available for living expenses – please see the Doctoral student salary agreement. The amount should be calculated less tax, which is approximately 32.2% of the income (average rate).
Please note that admission is preceded by a detailed evaluation process, and it is the faculty board that admits new doctoral students to third-cycle studies. Consequently, you should not sign any scholarship contract before you have a formal letter of admission from a faculty board.
