Admission PhD

AHO announces all PhD positions by public announcements on our web page. This usually happens in the begging of each year. 
To be admitted to AHOs PhD programme, the applicant must document a completed master degree or equivalent to it. Previous experience from research or through post-graduate master education will be an advantage. 

AHO only accept fully financed external PhD candidates. Financing for three year of full time studies must be documented. AHO does not accept student’s financed out of one’s own capital, the financing must be provided by external sources as Universities or University colleges, the Norwegian Research Council or businesses.  

Candidates financed through AHO’s own PhD positions or by external financed AHO projects are employed by the school and receive a monthly salary during the PhD education period. Students employed by other universities or university colleges can also apply to be admitted to the PhD programme.
