The main goal of the UniOGS is to provide the framework and conditions for high-quality, research-driven doctoral education for all students of the University of Oulu. By promoting the development of effective student-supervisor relationships, founded on both motivation and commitment, UniOGS aims to create a favourable environment for the planning, execution and timely completion of doctoral education tailored to each student. In UniOGS, students acquire a proficiency to work at doctoral level tasks. After completing the degree, the new doctor will have skills to solve problems with scientific methods in academia, administration, private enterprise, or other sectors, and should therefore have good employment opportunities.
