Sending application

Check your application and the appendices before you press ‘Send’. You can see a list of the mandatory appendices below.

Once you have pressed ‘Send’ you cannot edit your application.

Receipt
You will immediately get a text on the screen stating that your application has been sent. The return receipt by email may take a few hours. If you do not get a receipt on your screen, your application has not been submitted.

Problems
Please see this page (http://phd.arts.au.dk/applicants/how-to-apply/) for further information if you have problems submitting your application.

Send: Comments

Please check your application before you press “Send”. From September 2019 it is no longer possible to check the application after it has been sent because the link to the application in the return receipt (e-mail) was removed due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you suspect you have made an error in the application or uploaded the wrong document you need to fill out and send a whole new and complete application (before the application deadline). We will assess the application received last and automatically delete the first one when we find two applications from you to the same call.
