This workshop does not grant ECTS credit.The workshop is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH.

Are you interested in studying abroad during your PhD? Do you want to get any tips on what it requires to go abroad for your change of research environment?
All PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences are required to spend part of their programme in another research environment. During this meeting you can get answers to (almost) all your questions about going abroad and get inspiration on how to get started organizing your stay abroad.
Jørn Wulff Helge, Head of the Graduate School, will talk about why you should go abroad and what requirements the Graduate School has.
Daniel Thomas Mosbæk Jensen (International Staff Mobility) will talk about what help the university can give you and what to do about taxes and other practical aspects.
Finally, two PhD students will talk about their study abroad experiences: how they planned it and what they gained from it academically and personally.
