Gender Studies: Culture, Societies and Policies - Financial aid and tuition fees


Doctoral students must register for each academic year. The registration period begins in October and finishes in September of the following year.

The structure of the doctoral programmes is not based on ECTS credits. This means that students register instead for thesis tuition, which forms the foundation of doctoral study.

In additions to thesis tuition, doctoral registration includes administrative fees and compulsory insurance.

If the Academic Committee requires the students to take a bridging course, it will be counted in ECTS credits because the subjects tend to belong to master's degrees. The enrolment fee will be calculated according to the master's degree credit fee.
