Funding for doctoral research

By selecting a degree programme you are able to see the general content as well as the possible degree programme-specific content. You do not have to select a degree programme to see the Open University's instructions.

The University of Helsinki does not collect tuition fees from doctoral researchers, and studies at the university are free. However, as a doctoral student, you are expected to cover your own costs for living and accommodation. Under this theme, we’ve gather information on how to go about funding your doctoral studies. If you are only just planning to apply for doctoral studies, please also take a look at our funding instructions for new doctoral applicants on our external website.
