Full-time and part-time PhD

The ISS PhD programme is a full-time programme with a nominal duration of four years. It is also possible to do the PhD part-time. In the part-time option, PhD candidates should spend minimally 26 hours/week; the nominal duration is 6 years

The Research Degrees Committee decides on the feasibility of the part-time possibility, upon the advice of the prospective Doctoral Dissertation supervisors.
