Introduction to PhD

The Doctoral School of the Humanities at Aalborg University offers PhD education through 6 doctoral programmes in accordance with Ministerial Order No. 18 of 14th January 2008 on PhD programmes at the Universities.

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
