Introduction to PhD

The Doctoral School of the Humanities at Aalborg University offers PhD education through 5 doctoral programmes and in accordance with Ministerial Order No. 18 of 14th January 2008 on PhD programmes at the Universities.

The PhD programme qualifies students to engage in research, partly through work with their project and partly through participation in courses. These two elements constitute the core of the PhD programme together with a requirement of research communication.
 

The three-year PhD programme comprises the following elements:

  • Independent research
  • Writing of a PhD thesis based on own research
  • Course activities corresponding to 30 ECTS credits
  • Involvement in active research environments both at the Faculty of Humanities and externally
  • Communication activities, including teaching and other forms of knowledge dissemination
  • Thesis defence
