UEF Doctoral School
Doctoral education at the University of Eastern Finland is offered by doctoral programmes within the UEF Doctoral School. Our doctoral programmes cover all scientific fields of the university, and all doctoral students complete their studies in one of the programmes.
The task of the doctoral programmes is to offer systematic teaching and supervision for postgraduate students. The doctoral programmes aim at ensuring the high quality of doctoral education, shortening the time used for completing the doctoral dissertation and thus lowering the age at which the doctoral candidate defends his or her dissertation in a public examination. The ultimate goal is to educate highly skilled researchers and experts.
