Language studies

Aarhus University has decided to reorganize the language programmes at Arts and Aarhus BSS, so that the language programmes in future (from January 2017) will be merged and organized within the Faculty of Arts. If you have plans to apply for a PhD programme at Aarhus BSS Graduate School with a project in language studies, then you are instead advised to apply for a PhD programme in Language, Linguistics and Cognition at The Graduate School, Arts: http://talent.au.dk/phd/arts/programmes/language-linguistics-and-cognition/

Open call

PhD scholarships/fellowships where you apply with your own project

Open call, October 2016 (4+4 and 5+3)
2016-218/1-163

What is the difference between having a Master's degree and still being enrolled as a Master's student when applying for a PhD scholarship?

60-90 ECTS credits after application deadline:
You can apply for a 4+4 scholarship if you have already acquired 60 ECTS credits or will have acquired 60 to 90 ECTS credits in a Master’s degree examination after the deadline for application.

90 ECTS credits at the time of application:
If you have already earned 90 ECTS credits at the time of application you cannot apply for a 4+4 scholarship. You can apply for a 5+3 fellowship when the Master’s thesis has been submitted for assessment.

Master's degree - equivalent to a Danish Master's degree:
If you already have a Master's degree and it is equivalent to a Danish Master's degree you can only apply for the 5+3 fellowship (not the 4+4 scholarship).

Master's degree - NOT equivalent to a Danish Master's degree:
If you already have a Master's degree and it is not equivalent to a Danish Master's degree you can only apply for the 4+4 scholarship (not the 5+3 fellowship).

Because your Master's degree is not equivalent to a Danish Master's degree you are required to apply for enrolment and credit transfer for all courses previously completed as part of your degree programme at Master’s level (if you get the 4+4 scholarship). This means that you will be both a Master’s degree student and a PhD student during part A of the PhD degree programme (4+4).
