As the integrated graduate school of the UoC’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities, a.r.t.e.s. is responsible for all doctoral projects pursued at the Faculty.

There are two models of doctoral study: an individual doctoral project pursued in the standard model “Regular Track” and participation in the structured doctoral model “Integrated Track”.

You can participate in the Integrated Track either as a collegiate, one not receiving financial support provided by the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School, or through various funding programmes at the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. Calls for applications for doctoral scholarships are published in the winter semester, while calls for applications for scholarships for the preparation of a doctoral dissertation project (Pre-doc) are published in the summer semester, more information on both can be found here.
