“Do a master’s here – I’d say it’s a very good step to doing a PhD in Sweden. I did my master’s at Malmö University and now I’m doing a PhD at Lund University” – Sanjay, Malmö University.
So that means – no tuition fees, no scholarships. But you’ll receive a monthly salary instead. Nice, eh? And that’s why available PhD positions are listed on a university’s job board.
Passing the A Exam means the graduate faculty believes that you are ready to proceed into the dissertation phase of your degree program.
The A Exam is also known as the Examination for Admission to Candidacy. This oral exam may include a written component, as determined by your Special Committee. You can take the exam after completing two registered semesters in your program, but before beginning your seventh semester—unless special permission is obtained from the dean.
Given the fiscal constraints on our institution presented by the continuously evolving COVID-19 pandemic, HGSE has made the difficult decision not to accept doctoral applications for fall 2021 enrollment. We are pausing admissions for our fully-funded doctoral programs in order to uphold our commitment to maintaining program quality and strong support for our current students. At this time, the next application cycle is expected to have a December 2021 application deadline for fall 2022 enrollment.

We offer seven P.h.D degree specializations and view these as interconnected areas rather than silos. While choosing an area allows you to focus, your work takes place within a rich research environment where students are encouraged to draw on our strong interdisciplinary tradition. In both research and coursework, we encourage you to look beyond conventional boundaries and integrate across these areas.
Our Ph.D. students must be involved in productive research. You will be evaluated on two research projects and on your research potential, as well as on regular coursework. You are expected to develop research skills appropriate to your program, through a combination of course work, individual study, and experience.
The University offers research training of a high international standard, with a broad range of subject areas and strong research environments. A doctorate from the University of Oslo qualifies candidates for an academic career as well as other professions requiring a high level of competence.
To be eligible for admission to a PhD programme, certain educational and financial requirements must be met. If you have not applied to a PhD programme before, we recommend that you read this before you proceed to the programme pages.
Throughout the semester, required weekly seminars are sponsored by the Center for Nursing Research and the Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence.
All nursing science courses begin with a one- to two-day pre-semester intensive, which meets at University Park campus in the fall and the Hershey Medical Center campus in the spring. The intensive consists of an introduction to the classes, a meeting of the Doctoral Student Organization, and other workshops or seminars.
