CEURUS serves as a contact point for UT faculty and PhD students who conduct research on EU-Russia relations. Scholars associated with CEURUS supervise doctoral research projects, and the Centre seeks to offer an intellectually stimulating, interdisciplinary environment to all graduate students interested in  EU-Russia interaction. The Centre and its constituting units welcome international students into their study programmes.

Prospective PhD students should apply for admission into one of the PhD programmes offered at the University of Tartu (e.g. Political Science, Economics, or Law), and, once admitted, seek affiliation with CEURUS. Prospective students  in search of a supervisor are encouraged to contact CEURUS-affiliated scholars directly and introduce their research interests and plans.

For general information on PhD programmes at the University of Tartu, see here.
