Doctoral Studies

In many ways doctoral studies differs from regular studies at the university – before you apply, find out what the third-cycle level entails at the Department of Swedish. We offer programmes in Nordic languages, natural language processing and Swedish as a second language.

Research studies at the department comprise 240 ECTS, which is equivalent to four years of full-time study. You can choose to study within one of three main subject areas: Nordic languages, natural language processing and Swedish as a second language. Available positions for research studies are advertised via the university’s service for job vacancies; as there may be great competition for these places, it is important that you are well-prepared before you submit an application. Information about third-cycle programmes, our subjects, supervisors, courses and much more is provided below.
