PhD at the UW

The 2023/2024 recruitment for the UW doctoral schools covers 330 places in 3 fields of science and 24 disciplines of science. Starting the 1st October doctoral candidates will be taught according to the new programme. The programme emerged due to the joint discussion on the scientific and doctoral grounds to provide better support for doctoral candidates in their development.


The IRK registration of doctoral candidates will be available in May and June. Interviews and examinations will be conducted in July. Detailed information on the schedule of the recruitment procedures will be made public in the mid-March.
