Doctoral Studies

Doctoral Studies - Available at University of Iceland

Doctoral studies are expected to take 3-6 years with normal progress and are usually commenced after completing a Master's degree.

The goal of the doctoral programme is to bolster the abilities of candidates in independent scientific research and scholarly activities. In addition, the programme is intended to strengthen Icelandic research in the fields of education, nurture, training, pedagogy, and leisure.

The doctoral board reviews all applications. If an application meets demands, then possible supervisors are contacted if they are to be found within the School of Education, and the applicant is called in for an interview (See more info below under Doctoral Board and Administrative Staff)

All further information about the doctoral studies at the School of Education can be provided by the project managers at the Educational Research Institute:
