Doctoral studies are an introduction to the world of research. Research means posing questions for which as yet no satisfying answers have been found. Doctoral students conduct research work on their own initiative. The award of the doctoral title demonstrates that they have achieved a level of research expertise. Doctoral candidates can carry on their research activities at the Institutes and Chairs of the University of Liechtenstein, or in certain circumstances can even work outside the university.   

Doctoral programmes are offered in the faculties of Architecture and Planning and Information Systems.
