University

Many complete the PhD program in an employment relationship, where they are employed as a PhD fellow and enrolled at a university. If the university has advertised a vacant scholarship, it is the university that finances your salary as a PhD student.

The salary is determined in accordance with the AC agreement in the state.

Industrial PhD

As a Business PhD, you are enrolled at a university, at the same time as you are employed in a private or public company. The Industrial PhD scheme has a special business-oriented aim, and the company can receive a subsidy for your salary while you complete the project.

A special employment agreement must be entered into with the company, which bears the cost of your salary. 
The Industrial PhD scheme belongs to the Innovation Fund.

Hospital (region)

Within the health sector - typically at the hospitals - there are practices for arrangements where employees are enrolled at a university for the purpose of writing a PhD. As a Ph.D. at a hospital, your pay and employment conditions follow the AC agreement in the regions.

Municipality

Upon employment as a Ph.D. in a municipality, your salary and employment conditions follow the AC agreement in the municipalities.

Vocational College

The vocational university colleges have the opportunity to solve research assignments. It has therefore become possible for lecturers to take a PhD degree in collaboration with the universities. This type of PhD study can both be fully funded by the vocational university college or co-financed with a university.
