Travelling, courses and conference participation

To apply for departmental funding for travelling, course or conference participation, you need to get approval from your supervisor and then fill in this approval form and e-mail it to Head of the PhD Section Helena Skyt Nielsen, hnielsen@econ.au.dk.

The form is mandatory for all travel activities, and your subsequent travel settlement will not be accepted without this form duly completed. This applies regardless of the type of funding.

If you need help with the form, please contact one of the research secretaries of your section.

You may book a flight directly with an airline if it is cheaper than booking it via AU's travel agency CWT. However, you must be able to provide documentation. Read more about funding and travelling (booking, settlement, insurance) here.
