    TUCS Graduate School offers a framework for studying for the doctoral (PhD) degree in science, engineering or economics. It is truly international graduate school and hot-spot for the latest development in ICT. Study time for a full-time student is expected to be 4 years. The Graduate School provides additional instruments and training for preparedness of our students for challenges in working life, like mentorship and internship programmes and MBA programme.

    There are more than 100 students at TUCS Graduate School. As the Graduate School is open for students from everywhere and almost half of the students come from abroad, the environment at TUCS Graduate School is highly international. There are no tuition fees at Finnish universities at the moment, since the universities are financed by the Finnish government. Doctoral students are entitled - but not obliged - to join the Student Union of their university, and this involves a minor annual fee.

    Each student, who is accepted to the TUCS Graduate School, is placed in one of the TUCS Research Centres, and is assigned a personal supervisor, typically a professor. Also fellow researchers at the centres give guidance to new students. The students are expected to take advanced level courses from at least two of the TUCS main research areas.


    The language of instruction is English. The co-operation between the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University gives the TUCS students the possibility to participate in courses at both universities. In addition, TUCS Graduate School provides active exchange programmes with other leading European research groups.
