The Graduate School is directed at an international graduate studentship. Applications will be accepted from candidates who have completed Diplomas, M.A., M.Sc., or equivalent degrees in fields related to the theme of “Human Development in Landscapes”.
The training programme is designed to enable a maximum of flexibility where the different needs and interests of an interdisciplinary studentship can be served through an array of individual solutions.
The three-year School curriculum evolves in two phases. Throughout the first three terms, the students get acquainted with diverse academic basics necessary for the interdisciplinary nature of research in ‘Human Development in Landscapes’. Simultaneously, the students develop their research projects within one of the three clusters. Students are also introduced to the techniques and information made available by the research platforms. In the second half of the programme, the students will focus on the realisation of their research project, including writing articles and their PhD thesis. The curriculum will include two-weekly research colloquia, international workshops, excursions, surveys, and excavations.
The average number of doctoral students attending the School is 58, taught by 25 professors and researchers from their groups, as well as by three new junior professors. Dual ‘supervision’ of the PhD students is provided by professors from two different research fields and preferentially from two different faculties or by a foreign cooperation partner.
