Here is a list of possible external sources of funding for the PhD programme.
Normally, you will not receive admission to the PhD programme without funding for three years of full-time studies. You must procure funding yourself, and this is usually done in collaboration with the potential supervisor.
The most common sources of funding are:
- a doctoral research fellowship that is advertised externally
- funding from an external enterprise
- A Fulbright grant
- The Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU)
If you do not have full funding through such a grant scheme, at least 50% of your working hours must be available for research training, and normally at least one year must be set aside for full-time studies. It is not possible to plan completion of the PhD programme over a period of more than 6 years.
