The PhD program at NORDAKADEMIE provides for the following components:
Structured modules in scientific research:
The PhD program offers three modules in scientific work as basic tools for PhD students. The modules take place at the NORDAKADEMIE Campus Hamburg.
Like the Master modules, the modules will have a large proportion of self-study and a 2.5-day attendance block, so that they can be easily completed while working.
Colloquia - Exchange with each other:
In order to exchange ideas with other doctoral students and to put one's own doctoral concept to the test in a cooperative atmosphere, a colloquium is held once a year at the NORDAKADEMIE and once at the partner university, each under the supervision of an experienced lecturer.
Competencies in teaching and research:
Presenting one's own research results and assessing other people's work are competencies that every researcher should acquire. Therefore, the acquisition of these competencies is also part of the doctoral program.
Participation in scientific conferences, but also the review of other papers (e.g. bachelor theses) are opportunities to shed light on one's own topic in a different way.
Teaching courses and supervising bachelor theses at NORDAKADEMIE are credited towards tuition fees.
Each PhD is individually supervised by at least one NORDAKADEMIE university lecturer. In addition, supervision is provided by a professor from the partner university. The NORDAKADEMIE supervisor is available as a coach for content-related, methodological and formal questions.
The proven NORDAKADEMIE concept of comprehensive supervision also characterizes our approach to doctoral supervision.
The tuition fees are 5000 euros per year. This includes:
- the classroom lectures at NORDAKADEMIE and at the partner universities (excluding travel expenses)
- fees of the partner universities
- Examination fees
- Online/offline supervision
There is the option to reduce the tuition fees by supervising courses and theses or by own publications.
