How to become a doctoral student at LUT
You can become a doctoral student by first applying for open positions at LUT (junior researcher, project researcher). Then, you apply separately for a right to complete doctoral studies. This gives you a doctoral student status. Junior researchers can sign an employment contract only after they have secured a right to complete doctoral studies.
You can also study part-time while working outside the university, which naturally requires more time to complete the degree. Interested candidates with their own funding can apply for the doctoral study right after securing their funding and supervisory resources.
