Salary (part A of the 4+4 programme)

SU PhD scholarship

PhD students on part A of the 4+4 programme receive a payment corresponding to two SU vouchers per month (maximum 48 points). One SU vouchers corresponds to DKK 6,015.00 (2017).

Any remaining SU vouchers from your Master's degree programme will also be paid according to article 1 of the law regarding the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme (SU).

The SU vouchers from your Master's degree programme and the PhD SU vouchers are thus paid independently of each other.


Additionally, PhD students are offered employment simultaneously with the SU PhD scholarship which takes place in accordance with the agreement regarding payment of PhD students for work carried out in connection with the PhD programme (enclosure 5b).

The hourly salary is DKK 207.69 (April 2017, plus holiday pay on 12.5 per cent). The salary is based on 17.5 hours per month, and is disbursed on the last weekday of each month during February-May and September-December.

After obtaining a Master's degree and the successful completion of the qualifying exam the PhD student will be employed on the 4+4 programme's part B under the same conditions as a PhD fellow on the 5+3 programme.
