The Graduate School of Science and Technology (GSST) is the largest graduate school at Aarhus University with almost 800 PhD students enrolled. GSST offers PhD studies within all research areas of Science and Technology, ranging from Animal Science to Nanoscience. You can read more about our 13 PhD programmes here.
Students are admitted to GSST based on either a 3-year Bachelor’s degree or a 5-year Master’s degree – both of which entitle the PhD student to be admitted with credit transfer.
PhD programmes at GSST are well structured, and participation in PhD courses, visits to international research institutions or universities and dissemination of knowledge are parts of the PhD education. You will be working on your own research project and we offer first class supervision and research facilities. All of our PhD students are a part of the scientific environment at Science and Technology, and they get the opportunity to select from a broad range of both scientific courses and courses in transferable skills.
The majority of the PhD students are employed by the Faculty and employment conditions are favorable. The Graduate School has research facilities at Campus Aarhus, Foulum, Flakkebjerg, Roskilde and Årslev.
