Leave of Absence

A PhD student has the right to apply for leave of absence from the Doctoral School. The application must be signed by the supervisor and forwarded to the Doctoral Shool.

Leave of absence will normally be granted in cases of:

  • Illness
  • Childbirth
  • Military service etc.

Leave of absence means that the applicant’s PhD programme is prolonged by the duration of the leave of absence. If the leave is due to PhD related activities the leave must be for a period of minimum three months. Please note that an application for leave must generally be received by the Doctoral School no later than one month before the beginning of the leave.

If you are employed as a PhD stipend remember to notify the HR Department.

The application must be sent to aauphd@adm.aau.dk
