Who can apply ?

BIGH aim is to attract not only KI students with the courses offered but also students from other Swedish universities, and harmonize activities alongside with the two fore-mentioned National Doctoral Schools.

Do you want to sign up for the doctoral programme in Biology of infections and global health (BIGH)?

As a doctoral student at Karolinska Institutet you can sign up for one or more doctoral programme and thus obtain information on the courses and activities that are arranged. An expression of interest is submitted when you apply for admission to doctoral education, or at any time during the doctoral education by sending an email to Benedict Chambers. This means that you will receive information from the BIGH programme about the programme's courses and activities. You may choose from what is offered, but you do not commit to participate in any activity, nor are you guaranteed admission to any of the courses organized within the framework of the programme.

Application and admission to courses on doctoral level

Application to courses is made directly in the Course catalogue at Karolinska Institutet. The available courses on doctoral level are announced once per semester. The catalogue for courses is published on ki.se around April 15 respectively October 15 and is open for application during one month.

After the application period is closed the applicant can only be admitted according to availability. A late application is made directly to the course organizer. KI's courses are open for registered doctoral students at all universities and colleges. If space allows, other applicants may also be accepted.

Formal note about admission (or not) is emailed to the applicants within a month after the application time is closed.  If you are not admitted, you will be asked for interest to be on the waiting list. The applicant needs to confirm participation by a form signed by the applicant and his/hers supervisor.
