After the qualifying exam you must claim your honorarium and reimbursement of your travel expenses:
Examiners WITH a Danish CPR number:
Please fill in the honorarium and information forms you received by e-mail and send them to email@example.com. Remember to attach documentation of your expenses (invoices, receipts, etc.).
Examiners WITHOUT a Danish CPR number:
Please send an e-mail to Phd.firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the name of the PhD student and the day of the qualifying exam. We will then send you a personal link you must use in order to claim your honorarium and reimbursement of your travel expenses.
All claims should be made within the current fiscal year – claims relating to qualifying exams in December, however, no later than by the end of January the following year.
