Preliminary information

In Italy, access to PhD courses is subject to a selection procedure. Every year a new cycle starts and every year the University of Trieste publishes an Admission Announcement with all the applicable rules, requirements and deadlines. New applications may be accepted at a later stage, and reopening and supplementary announcements may be posted on the website.
The PhD courses available for enrolment in the first year are listed here
Since 2013, PhD Courses are subject to national accreditation agency requirements. The procedure may be ongoing when the Admission Announcement is published. Please keep checking the website for updates.
The information related to each PhD course (overview of the programme, learning outcomes, scientific areas, number of places/scholarships/research grants available, contact people etc.) is provided in the relevant attachment to Admission Announcement.
A place may be allocated with either a scholarship or a research grant or else. In some cases, no financial support is granted. A scholarship or research grant may be targeted to a pre-assigned topic. This information is provided in the attachments.
