Each PhD student is assigned a lead supervisor on admission. This is a researcher employed by the University (at least an assistant professor). In addition to providing academic and study-related guidance, supervisors are required to see that studies, including planned course participation, proceed satisfactorily and makes progress according to plan.
During the course of studies, the lead supervisor will at the very least make regular assessments of course progress. In standard programmes, student assessments are made 26 months, 14 months and 6 months before the end of courses.
Your supervisor is also especially responsible for enabling you to get in touch with active researchers outside UCPH.
UCPH stresses the importance of good supervision and has therefore developed a folder on this. Read more about PhD supervision at UCPH in the two folders on the right hand side (in Danish and English).
