About The Doctoral Programme in Music Therapy at Aalborg University
The Doctoral Programme in Music Therapy at Aalborg University offers PhD education within the science of music therapy. The doctoral students are trained in a stimulating international research milieu and meets twice a year in Aalborg for oneweek courses where they work with the peer group, invited presenters and the supervisors.
In this cross-disciplinary and enriching learning community research ideas and problems are shared, and learning has value at an academic as well as at a professional and personal level following the principles of Problem Based Learning.
The aim of the doctoral training is to promote the accumulation of clinical evidence, scientific knowledge, advanced competence in research methodology, theory development and international cooperation in a collaborative atmosphere of learning.
Two tuition fee PhD scholarships are available for enrolment from Dec. 2015.
With a three year PhD scholarship you will have basic research expenses paid (supervision, travels, and PhD courses) but no salary and no teaching obligations in Aalborg.
