A complete financing plan for the PhD study period is a prerequisite to obtain admission to the PhD programme at the GSNS. The financing plan must cover all expenses for the PhD (scholarship/fellowship, tuition fee, running costs, incl. expenses for mobility plans, etc.).
The student does not have to bring his or her own financing when applying, but if financial support is available, this must be documented as part of the application. In connection with the admission procedure, the GSNS will in collaboration with the main supervisor draw up the financing plan, including expenses such as training costs, tuition fee, scholarship and/or fellowship.
Other PhD students are employed in private companies as part of the Industrial PhD programme. Most other PhD students are either awarded a PhD scholarship or a PhD fellowship through Aarhus University, with funding coming from a multitude of sources such as the university, public or private research foundations, private companies, EU programmes, etc.
