Design Doctoral Studies
DesignDesign Doctoral Studies
Since 2000 it has been possible to do postgraduate studies at HDK. Currently we have eight PhD-students in design. A research training programme is provided by the faculty’s research school. The school offers research training in several disciplines, among others design. Recently crafts has been added as a discipline for postgraduate studies.
Studying for a research degree normally takes four years of full time studies. Together with a supervisor each student makes up an individual study plan. Part of the plan consists of taught courses and seminars that the faculty’s research school organize. The main focus is on the indivually defined research topic. A final thesis is submitted at the end of the four years.
