In the first half of 2021, 898 doctoral degrees were completed at Norwegian universities. If the trend continues, a new record could be registered by the end of the year.

If 2021 ends up being a record year, it will be the fourth year in a row that a record number of doctoral degrees has been registered, Khrono writes.

43% of those who obtained a doctorate in Norway in the first half of the year were foreign nationals – especially in mathematics, science, and technology. The gender balance is even overall, but there are large differences within different subject areas.

Only 7% of the dissertations were written in Norwegian, mainly in the social sciences, humanities, and arts.

Most doctoral degrees were completed at the University of Oslo (254) and NTNU (235).
