Change in the group of supervisors

The composition of the supervisor group is a matter between the PhD student and the principal supervisor. It is possible to apply for changes of supervisors.

If you change supervisors please pay attention to the supervisor requirements. 
Please be aware that two people with a close relationship or family relationship may not be in the same supervisor group.

Industrial PhD students must enclose a pre-approval from Innovation Fund Denmark.

When would you make changes in the group of supervisors?

  • If your principal supervisor is no longer employed at the faculty.
  • If your project has taken a turn and you need other professional skills in the group of supervisors.
  • If a person has contributed significantly to the supervision and needs to be added to the supervisor group as a co-supervisor.
  • If the supervisor is disqualified due to legal incapacity e.g. family relations or any other close personal or financial ties.
