Funding - PhD students

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 Bo Sandemann Rasmussen. Please forward a copy of the signed approval form to Susanne Christensen: sch@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.

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

Other expenses

To apply for departmental funding for books, submission fees or other expenses, you must get approval from your supervisor and then fill in this approval form and e-mail it to Bo Sandemann Rasmussen. Please forward a copy of the signed approval to one of the research secretaries of your section

You cannot commit to any expenses before you have applied for and obtained approval.

Approval of external PhD courses

In case you choose to take external courses, an application for preapproval of the course and a course description must be submitted to your Head of Programme (Bo Sandemann Rasmussen) before attending the course (i.e. at least 14 days prior to the first course date). The application form must be signed by your main supervisor to confirm that the course is relevant to your PhD project. Both you and your supervisor must suggest how many ECTS the course should give, and a motivation for your suggestion must be included (note that at least 15 of the 30 ECTS points required to fulfil the demands for the PhD education set by the Ministerial PhD Order must come from internal BSS courses).

Don’t forget to update your PhD plan with the planned course and the preapproval as an attachment.

After attending the course, you must submit the preapproved application form, a detailed course programme and the course diploma to the Graduate School.

Don’t forget to update your PhD plan again after completing the course.

A more detailed description of the procedure as regards external courses and the application form are available via the Graduate School's website.
