For the PhD programme in Teaching and Teacher Education (TTE), placement in a research fellow position and admission to the PhD programme are implemented in a single process. That is, the applicant who is hired for a position is also automatically granted admission to the PhD programme. The appointment process for TTE therefore often requires that the applicant has prepared a detailed project description before appointment.
For the other PhD programmes (Applied Ecology, Audiovisual Media, BUK and INSEPP), appointment as a research fellow and admission to the PhD programme are two separate processes. You must first apply for a published vacancy, and then apply for admission to the PhD programme. However, appointment as a research fellow is conditional on the PhD candidate applying to the relevant PhD programme within three (3) months from the appointment. If no admission agreement has been signed within six months, INN University as the employer can terminate the employment contract.
The faculties / programme committees make the decisions regarding admission to the PhD programmes.
