Admission to PhD programmes

Currently there are no doctoral positions announced!

Students are only accepted to the Academy of Music and Drama's Ph.D. Programmes when a special call for applicants has been issued. 

Applicants with guaranteed external funding can apply each year. For more information read the "Rules and regulations for third-cycly studies at the University of Gothenburg". 

When openings in the PhD Programmes are advertised, doctoral candidate positions for the same duration as the Ph.D. Programme requires (i.e., four years) will also be advertised. This means that Ph.D. students and doctoral candidates will be employed for a fixed four-year term and at a fixed salary. The starting salary is SEK 28,050 per month. Once a student has completed 50% of the Ph.D. Programme, their monthly salary will be raised to SEK 30,450. Once 80% of the programme has been completed, it will be raised again to SEK 32,900.

Current admissions

The next round of admissions will be announced on the home page of the Academy of Music and Drama.
