Obtaining a PhD degree without enrolment 

You can apply to submit a PhD thesis without enrolment at the Graduate School in accordance with the Ministerial Order on the PhD programme, section 15 (2). This requires qualifications that are comparable to the qualifications obtained through a PhD programme.









Defence and awarding of the degree

The defence must be planned in cooperation with your university representative and the approved assessment committee members.
Learn more about the practical aspects of the oral defence and the awarding of the PhD degree on the page 'PhD defence and certificate'. Be aware that the form 'Information for the PhD defence and certificate' on the page also applies to PhD students without enrolment.
