Before you can be enrolled as a PhD student, you need to have your qualifications, proposed research project and financing in place.
Please note that you need an agreement with a main supervisor before you can apply - the Graduate School cannot help with this.
Criteria for enrolling as a PhD student
To be enrolled as a PhD student, you must hold a master's degree (Danish: Kandidatgrad) or equivalent academic degree. You also need to have documented research experience. Read more
A project description that can be approved by the Graduate School
Your application for enrolment must be accompanied by a description of the research project that will form the basis of your PhD. The project description should be written in close collaboration with the senior researcher who has agreed to be your main supervisor during your PhD study period. Your project proposal will go through a review process with participation of an external expert panel. Read more
You do not need to have all the financing of your PhD project in place before you apply for enrolment. However, the financing must be in place before you can enrol in the programme. You need funds for your own salary, for the project's running costs and for the tuition fees. Provided that you have already secured financing for two years' salary and tuition fees, and 50% of the running costs, you can apply for a one-year faculty scholarship including tuition fees.
