About the evaluation

The evaluators were asked to comment and advise on the organisation of the graduate school and its PhD programmes and to recommend actions that can contribute to the further development of the PhD programmes at Aarhus University.

The panel received materials documenting the organisation and performance of the graduate schools, including a self-evaluation report. An on-site visit took place during which the panel met with PhD students, representatives of the PhD Association, supervisors, programme chairs, the faculty management team, and the head of the graduate school.

The next international evaluation of the graduate schools at Aarhus University will take place in 2020.
