Graduate programmes at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

As a PhD student you must be enrolled under one of the 20 graduate programmes. The graduate programmes are individual research training programmes and offer PhD students a variety of courses, seminars and other academic activities. A significant part of the research training offered to the PhD students, takes place through the graduate programmes.

All programmes have a head of graduate programme and a supporting steering committee. The heads of graduate programmes meet twice a year with the Vice-Dean for Research and the Head of the Graduate School.
