Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
The Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University is one of the leading education and research institutions in Sweden and operates both in Lund and Helsingborg.
The Department of Psychology combines education with research and has in recent years been very successful in the competition for external research funds. Central research areas include occupational and organizational psychology, clinical psychology, cognition, neuropsychology, personality and social psychology and developmental psychology.
Many of our courses are developed in connection with research projects, and students are given the opportunity to gain access to current research findings from teachers who themselves are active researchers in their respective areas. Our education environment has long been highly internationalized.
The doctoral programme amounts to 240 credits, the equivalent of four years of full time studies. The programme formally ends with the doctoral candidate publicly defending her/his published doctoral thesis. The primary obligation of the holder of a limited tenure doctoral position is to successfully fulfill her/his third cycle education ending with an approved Ph.D. thesis.
Regulations for limited tenure employment as a doctoral student are found in Higher Education Ordinance (chapter 5, 1-7§§). Only those persons who have been formally accepted to doctoral studies by the department can be eligible for limited tenure employment as a doctoral student. In addition to their own doctoral studies doctoral students can be required to perform departmental duties such as teaching, research and administrative work in accordance with the terms of the regulation, amounting to 20 percent of full time. Information regarding doctoral studies in psychology are available at the following site: http://www.psy.lu.se/en/study/phd-programme
Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who have completed a second-cycle degree, have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.
A person meets the specific admission requirements for third-cycle studies in psychology if he or she has passed at least 30 second-cycle credits in the main field of psychology, including a second-cycle degree project worth 15 credits, or equivalent knowledge acquired in Sweden or abroad.
