Second edition of the PhD Programme in Global Studies at Urbino University


At a time when European integration and disintegration, and challenges to globalisation dominate current policy concerns, the University of Urbino offers an interdisciplinary Ph.D. Programme in Global Studies, at a cross-roads of Economics, Business, Political Science, Sociology and Law.


The programme addresses two thematic areas in alternate years:


-        in the 2018-2019 edition: Global Society, Cross-border Mobility and Law

-        in the 2019-2020 edition: International Economic Policy, Business and Governance (Previous edition: 2017/18)


The upcoming 2018-2019 edition focuses on cross-border movements of capital, knowledge, labour and people, mainly from institutional, legal and sociological perspectives. A specific attention will be given to:


The Ph.D. Programme is developed over three years (from Fall 2018 until Fall 2021) and will be organised as follows:

• a first year of courses and exams in Urbino;

• a second year of international research and training, mainly spent in international institutions associated to the Programme;

• a third year of research activity for completing the Ph.D. thesis.


English will be the working language of the Ph.D. Programme.


Nine positions are offered in the 2018-2019 Ph.D. Programme, including seven positions with scholarships covering fees and an annual tax-free stipend at standard Italian rates (EUR 15,300 per year; the amount is increased by 50% for training periods outside Italy).


The Faculty of the Ph.D. Programme draws from the staff of the University of Urbino and from a number of outstanding international institutions.
