Formal qualification requirements
To enrol in the PhD programme you need to have completed a master's degree (Danish: Kandidatgrad) or other relevant degree that concludes a research-based study programme of minimum five years’ duration at an institution of higher education.
If you do not hold a master's degree (Kandidatgrad), the Graduate School will make an individual assessment of your academic qualifications. For instance, a professional bachelor's degree and a subsequent two-year postgraduate degree can be adequate.
If you hold a degree from an international institution, the Graduate School may require assessment of your qualifications by the Danish Agency for International Education.
Documented research experience
In addition to fulfilling the formal qualification requirements, you must also have some form of documented research experience. You may for example be the author or co-author of an article in a peer-reviewed international journal or of a published abstract from an international scientific conference. The research experience of each applicant is individually assessed by the Graduate School.
You need to have good oral and written English language skills. In some cases, the Graduate School may require that a language test is successfully passed. Approved tests are TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
