As part of your PhD course, you must attend PhD courses and similar educational elements. In total, you must participate in courses equivalent to approx. 30 ECTS points. We recommend that you, together with your supervisors, compile your course programme as soon as possible to suit your specific project and research interests. Read more about the composition of the course programme here.

The only compulsory course during your PhD programme is ‘Responsible Conduct of Research’, which is conducted once or twice a year. Find more information about the course here.

We encourage you to apply for course approval on an ongoing basis once you have completed courses. Please submit your application for approval of completed course activities to the PhD School’s secretariat. It will then be processed by the PhD committee.
