As part of your PhD at the University of Copenhagen, you need to take about 30 ECTS in PhD courses or similar educational modules corresponding to six months of studies. These courses can either be done at UCPH or at other universities in Denmark or abroad.

The courses can be specifically academic or generally relevant to research, such as writing articles in English, scientific ethics or intellectual property.  Further, it is obligatory for all PhD students at the University of Copenhagen to attend and have completed a course of ethics and good scientific practice.

Danish universities have made an agreement on PhD courses to make it easier for students to take PhD courses at other Danish universities.
