The PhD School is responsible for all administration concerning the Faculty of Humanities’ PhD programme. We offer assistance to anybody considering a PhD at the faculty. Among other things, we provide advice and guidance on types of scholarships, collaboration with private and public-sector companies, the Industrial PhD programme, the internationalisation of PhD programmes, studying abroad and competency and career identification. We also provide advice on co-operation agreements for double and joint degrees and co-funded PhD projects.

In addition, we work with the head of the PhD School, the PhD Committee and the PhD coordinators on the organisation and administration of courses at the PhD School and other events for the faculty’s PhD students.

In purely organisational terms, the administration of the PhD School has been shared by two departments since 1 June 2017: the PhD School (at the Faculty of Humanities) and the PhD Administration (under HR South and City Campuses). The latter services the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Theology.
