Approval of supervisors

In general, faculty members holding permanent tenure at the rank of full or associate professor at one of the departments are potential supervisors to PhD students enrolled in their academic field. However, all supervisors must complete the training course for supervisors,  which is offered at the Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University, in order to increase the quality of the supervision. Course contents are approved by the dean, and the course is offered in Danish and English (in connection with the establishment of Aarhus BSS Graduate School, in replacement of the main academic areas two former graduate schools, already established agreements on supervision will continue.)

The training course is mandatory for tenured faculty at the rank of associate professor and above at the Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University, and the course (or corresponding course) must be completed no later than 2 years after employment. Corresponding courses must be approved by the head of the graduate school.

In special cases, faculty who do not hold tenure at Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University, may qualify to serve as a co-supervisor at the graduate school. The head of the graduate school must approve such arrangements on the basis of the recommendation by the chairman of the field committee.
