Enrolment in the PhD programme

In order to be enrolled as a PhD student one should apply. It is then up to the Department of Economics to decide whether the applicant is qualified or not.

A PhD study can be financed by a scholarship from the University of Copenhagen, or by external funds. In the latter case, the student must independently raise the funds, e.g. from a research council or via an employer.

Notice that the PhD programme at the University of Copenhagen builds on a Master's degree in Economics (or for the 4+4 Programme a Bachelor in Economics plus one full year of Master's studies in Economics). 

Before applying, it is a good  idea to contact the faculty member whom you would like to become your supervisor.

Application forms and information about the application procedure may be obtained at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
