Research schools gather research studies from several disciplines within a shared framework. These disciplines could be from multiple faculties and multiple universities. Only those who are admitted to research studies may take part in the activities of a research school at LTH. Admission to research studies within a research school is not separate from ordinary admission; rather, admissions take place via a research studies subject. Doctoral students within a research school undertake research studies on the terms given in their individual study plan and in the general syllabus for their subject.
