Selection Procedure for PhD-Candidates:

We consider the quality of the PhD proposal, its fitting into the University of Arts and Design Linz, the motivation and language skills of the applicants as well as the availability of study places within the Erasmus cooperation. The selection process does not include a judgement on the artistic-scientific value of your work.

For the PhD-program, the decision upon applications lies with the coordinator of the PhD-program. She will start reviewing applications about 2 weeks after the application deadline.

Students and their coordinators will receive the decision by email within 6 weeks after the deadline. Letters of acceptances follow by post mailing, if desired.

Please send the documents via email unless you feel that the paper version is more suitable:
