Submission of the PhD thesis

The PhD thesis can be submitted by e-mail to with the following five attachments (pdf):

  • A statement from the main supervisor describing the overall PhD course, including a short presentation of the role of any co-supervisors and a statement as to whether the PhD student has satisfactorily complied with the degree programme.

  • Co-author declarations for all the included articles, scanned into one file – see Forms & Guidelines

  • Documentation from the University Library regarding completed originality check as pfd - see originality check
  • A description of the PhD programme that includes the following:
    A list of completed courses
    A description of teaching and knowledge dissemination activities 
    A description of contacts with other research environments during the PhD programme


One of the mandatory documents that must be submitted with the PhD thesis is Declaration of Co-authorship. Here the extend of the PhD students contribution to the articles in the thesis must be indicated. 

One declaration for each article or manuscript must be included. All co-authors must sign the declaration, however, it is okay that there are several documents for the same article or manuscript, if it is not possible to get the co-authors to sign the same document.
Please remember to sign all pages, and combine them into one pdf-file before submission. 

The enrolment as a PhD student ends when the thesis is submitted. PhD students who are not employed elsewhere, will therefore qualify for unemployment benefit from the date of submission.
