Admission outside ordinary calls

There are two annual ordinary open calls, one in the spring semester and one in the autumn semester. See the timeline for PhD applications for the ordinary open calls.

Admission outside ordinary calls – Grant for a specific applicant

If a PhD candidate has received money for a PhD project, you can ask the Graduate School of Health to apply for admission outside the ordinary calls.

Please note, that this is only a possibility if you have been granted a grant specifically to you of at least 50 per cent of the salary for a PhD and study fee. In addition, you need to document that the remaining funding has been secured.
