The Graduate School of Health offers funding of PhD prgrammes with the purpose of improving internationalisation of the overall PhD education at Health.
It is possible to apply for a grant for 1-3 months for a research stay at Health.The purpose of the research stay is to screen an international candidate’s suitability for a PhD study at Health, and the stay can thus be used for preparing an application for PhD enrolment and a general introduction to the local research environment.
The screening grant amounts to DKK 15,000 per month (taxed at source) to be used for living expenses (housing, course fees, etc.) and travel expenses (transport, visa etc.). The grant cannot be used for project materials and permanent equipment or for travel expenses for family members.
Please note that the grant is not to be compared with a salaried position (employment) and is not extended due to maternity/paternity leave or sickness. It does not include holiday allowance, pension and AU insurance schemes. Therefore, it is strongly advised that the candidate takes out a private accident and liability insurance.
We accept applications on a running basis and process them as they are received.
