PhD at the Aarhus School of Architecture

A PhD study at Aarhus School of Architecture is an independent research study and enrolment is based on a thoroughly described project, which has been approved by the schools PhD Committee.

Our PhD programme complies with the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education’s Order on the PhD programme and is dominated by individually described PhD plans. Only a smaller part takes place as common courses at our PhD School.


Affiliation and PhD school

PhD students at the Aarhus School of Architecture will normally be affiliated to one of the research groups at the school where they are members of the academic environment. In addition to this PhD students are affiliated with the PhD School at the Aarhus School of Architecture. The PhD School partly attends to the responsibility of the educational elements in a PhD study, and partly constitutes a common forum for the PhD students of the school.

One of the primary tasks of the PhD School is to implement a basic course for PhD students enrolled at the Aarhus School of Architecture or other research institutions.

Furthermore, the PhD School organizes
- seminars where the students present to each other their ongoing projects in their current state

- seminars on themes that are either of broad academic interest to or connected with the specific research areas of PhD students, plus

- courses on assignment writing, academic rhetoric and similar general supplementary subjects for PhD students.
