How to Do A PhD in Europe

Europe boasts a huge diversity of opportunities for doctoral training. European PhD programmes enjoy international recognition for excellence thus providing an exceptional career launch pad for young researchers.

Many European countries charge very little or no fees for PhD studies while also offering scholarships for international applicants.

The European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) offer funding for thousands of PhD students to carry out their doctoral research across Europe.
