Research Programme in Global Health > Programme
The PhD programme takes three years to complete and consists of six months of formal coursework, project research and thesis writing, all carried out under the supervision and mentorship of a Faculty member. PhD students are able to take courses in, for instance, research methodology and design an individual study programme that will best support their research needs. The taught course component also provides an important point of contact and access to the intellectual community of the university. In addition to this, PhD students are encouraged to develop an international profile through cooperation with international research groups and publication in scientific journals.
