Registration for Master's courses

Please note that there are two different procedures when signing up for Master’s courses, depending on whether the course should be part of the 30 ECTS PhD course programme or the 60 ECTS MSc course programme.

All PhD students who wish to follow a Master’s course as part of their 30 ECTS PhD course programme must send an e-mail to gradschool.scitech@au.dk, subject “Registration for Master’s Courses”, containing the following information: Name, student number, name of the course, course period, and STADS UVA code (can be found in the course catalogue). NB. Be sure to send this information from your AU email address to ensure a secure delivery.

PhD students who wish to follow a Master’s course as part of their 60 ECTS MSc course programme, must sign up for Master’s courses through the online Self Service facility.

Please note:
We recommend that you sign up for the Master’s courses as soon as possible and no later than three weeks before the course starts. Please note that we cannot guarantee a place for you on the requested course as the Master’s courses have a limited number of places.

Approval of the Master’s courses programme

PhD students who study their Master's in parallel to a PhD programme must fill in a plan for their Master’s courses. This will enable the head of Master’s programme and the study administration to validate the content of the Master’s programme and issue a valid Master’s degree diploma.

The plan for the Master’s courses must be filled in immediately after admission to GSST, and it should be attached to the PhD plan.

You must fill in the Master's contract (in Danish: “Kandidatkontrakt”) electronically through the Contract generator (in Danish: “Kontraktgenerator”). You will have to either create a new contract or edit your previous one. Choose the Master’s contract template and then tick off the box ‘PhD student’.
The template will then display a qualifying exam instead of a Master’s thesis. When you click on "Send", the contract will be sent to the relevant head of Master’s programme for approval.

When the approved contract is returned to you from the head of Master’s programme, export a PDF version and attach it to your PhD plan under the plan element ’Other activities’ and name it ’Master’s programme’.
