A European Joint Doctorate requires the participating universities to jointly agree to have separate agreements for doctoral education, covering such matters as admission, supervision and examination. The doctoral student writes a thesis but is normally registered at one or more universities and pursues his or her studies at different universities through joint supervision, and then defends his or her thesis at one of the universities in the consortium. Applications for a European Joint Doctorate grant from the EU require a Letter of Commitment from KI, which may be granted on the fulfilment of certain basic conditions. The Board of Doctoral Education has therefore decided to issue guidelines for recommending applications for European Joint Doctorates.


The internal deadline for submitting the required documents as described in the guidelines above is 3 December, 2018.  Full instructions
