For the University of Thessaly (UTH) the Post-Graduate Study Programs constitute an important field for in-depth study as well as production of research and we constantly strive to support and develop them. They pertain to a wide range of scientific fields and are constantly enriched according to international scientific developments. At the same time, the UTH pays special attention to doctoral dissertations conducted in innovative and emergent knowledge fields. In adverse economic conditions, we try to find ways to aid PhD candidates financially, we organize internal scholarship programs while supporting our students in their quest for external funding in order for them to conduct high quality research. Second and Third cycle postgraduate studies are conducted in an international learning environment through interinstitutional and international collaborations of the UTH with both Greek and foreign universities.
