PhD programmes at UCPH
In the research programme system, there are various ways of organizing a PhD programme. Also read about the various PhD schemes:
The standard model
The standard model is also called the 5+3 scheme. This requires students to have completed a Masters programme, i.e. as a rule a five year Bachelor and Masters process followed by a three year PhD programme. Universities can grant admission to graduate programmes on the basis of an assessment of the level of completed Masters programmes or the like.
Flexible models (3+5 and 4+4 schemes)
In 1992, universities were permitted to admit students contemporaneously on Masters and PhD programmes. Students thus now have the option of starting a PhD process before they have completed their Masters. This flexibility is intended to ensure that universities have the best opportunities for organizing and targeting masters programmes so they interact with the PhD process as well as possible.
The flexible models enable students to opt for a career as a researcher early on. The flexible models thus support graduate talent care and early recruitment
