There are 3 different ways of funding your PhD at BI:

There are no tuition fees in the PhD program at BI. However, in order to have an application to the PhD program at BI considered, you need to have funding. It is not possible to self-fund a PhD at BI.

  1. Open scholarship (funded by BI): These scholarships are announced once a year, from November to January. The scholarships are open which means that your PhD will not be linked to a specific project but must fit it under one of the six specializations offered by BI. A member of the academic faculty must share your research interests to be able to supervise you. A supervisor will be appointed for you if you are admitted to the program.
  2. Scholarship linked to a research project: These scholarships are announced from time to time. Your PhD research and dissertation will have to be closely linked to the research project. You are usually not required to find a supervisor before applying. You are encouraged to contact the faculty involved in the project if you are interested in applying. Each project will belong to one of the six specializations at BI. In some cases, the project can be linked to more than one specialization.
  3. Industrial PhD: It is a doctoral degree that is carried out in cooperation between BI and business and industry. An industrial PhD has the same requirements for educational background for admission and is also considered a full-time program.
