The PhD training programme open to candidates who have funding from NHH or external funding. It is based on close cooperation with other national and international institutions offering similar programmes. The PhD candidates must undertake relevant course work equivalent to 45 ECTS. The course portfolio includes obligatory courses in Research Ethics, Theory of Science and Academic Writing, as well as elective thematic courses, e.g. organised by the national PhD school in linguistics until 2021(Language and Text: Methodologies and Applications for the Digital Age, formerly Lingphil). Given the international focus of the Department, the students are strongly encouraged to carry out part of their scholarship/coursework abroad.
Candidates may be included in the department’s current research projects.
