Application procedures

The general admission requirement to a doctoral programme is a Master's-level degree, comparable to the Danish two-year Master's degree, the Candidatus degree. Some faculties also offer four-year PhD programmes for students who have yet to complete a Master's degree. The minimum number of ECTS required is 180.

Admission also requires a positive assessment of the PhD project proposal from the host institution.

The application calendar is as follows:

  • Prepare a PhD project proposal
  • Find and contact a university or other research institution
  • Examine the funding possibilities
  • Apply for a residency and work permit

Proficiency in the local language is not required. It is possible for international students to follow a full PhD programme in English.
