Applying for enrolment with external funding


When you have the full funding for a 3-year enrolment you can apply for enrolment. In order to get a direct link to the application facility you must contact the PhD administrator at the PhD programme you want to be affiliated. You cannot apply for enrolment before you have received a grant for the whole duration of the enrolment.

You must be able to prove that you have the full funding before you apply for enrolment.

If you need an advance commitment from the university before you can apply for external funding please contact Anna Plaskett from the PhD administration.

The funding for your enrolment can come from:

  • a grant from a foundation, public research programmes etc.
  • an Industrial PhD fellowship provided by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation
  • a collaboration between the Faculty of Arts and your employer (museum, company etc.) or
  • self-payment. You pay for the PhD programme yourself.
