Doctoral Studies

""

The School of Health Sciences offers 12 diverse PhD programmes. The School provides excellent research facilities and instructors who are some of the nation's foremost experts in health sciences. It collaborates on teaching and in research with many outstanding domestic and international institutions.

The objective of doctoral studies is to provide students with training in science and research and prepare them for independent work in a chosen field. That includes training in preparation and implementation of research, processing and interpretation of research findings, presentation and discussion of their research, and publication in international peer-reviewed journals. 

Doctoral studies are expected to take 3-5 years with normal progress and are usually commenced after completing a Master's degree.

International quality assurance

The School of Health Sciences has been awarded an ORPHEUS (Organisation for PhD Education in Biomedicine and Health Sciences in the European System) label for excellence in PhD training. The University of Iceland is the 5th university in Europe to receive the label.
