Licentiate degree

A licentiate comprises 120 credits of research studies, which corresponds to two years of full-time study. A licentiate can form a stage in your studies for those admitted to a PhD, but you can also end your studies with a licentiate. The academic thesis is called a licentiate thesis and is presented and assessed at a public seminar. For a licentiate degree, you must have passed the courses that form part of the programme and the licentiate thesis.
