As a rule, the PhD student must aim to earn 15 ECTS credit points for courses offered by the Aarhus BSS Graduate School. The remaining 15 ECTS credits may be earned by taking courses offered by other institutions.  

BTECH incur the expenses for participation in such courses not offered by Aarhus University, if approved by the supervisor and the Graduate School beforehand.

The PhD student is able to earn ECTS credits abroad as well, typically in connection with a stay abroad. Only in exceptional cases does BTECH pay expenses for courses abroad that are not part of the stay at another foreign research institution.
