Research Doctoral Education


Find your own funding


If you choose to fund your own dissertation, you may still apply and enrol as a doctoral candidate. You will not receive an employment contract through the University. If you are employed elsewhere, you may choose to carry out your doctoral studies on a part-time basis.

Other funding

Non-University funding is available through:

National research grants from the Luxembourg National Research Fund, and more particularly the AFR Individual scheme;
Third-party funding: funding through companies in public-private partnerships, or directly through a Luxembourg research institute (LI).
