2 2 PHD SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2013

3 Foreword The annual report from the PhD School of SCIENCE provides an overview of the activities in 2013, including key numbers for academic activities, statistics of enrolled and graduated students, administrative initiatives, new study programmes, and collaborative initiatives with international universities. Furthermore, the report includes a list of all graduated PhD students in The PhD programme is one of the flagships at the university. The Faculty of Science will continue to allocate significant resources to the training and education of PhD students within natural and life sciences. The overall focus of the Science PhD programme continues to be training of researchers who will contribute to the further development of the general welfare and knowledge level in our society in both the public and the private sector. The PhD School of SCIENCE strives for excellence in all elements of a PhD study including supervision, research training, educational programmes, and research accomplishments. This is documented by the very large number of qualified applications from all over the world to advertised PhD positions. Over the past year, 332 new students have been enrolled at the PhD school. A total of 1132 students are currently enrolled, of which 538 or about 50 % come from outside Denmark. The SCIENCE PhD programme has a good gender balance with 50 % female and 50 % male PhD students enrolled. We are very pleased that the faculty departments have been able to recruit so many talented Danish and international students.

4 Important Activities in 2013 Following the merger between Faculty of Science (NAT) and Faculty of Life Science (LIFE), the PhD School of SCIENCE was established in January New regulations, administrative structures and ways of communicating among the many stakeholders had to be implemented. Therefore, the main focus of the PhD school in 2013 was to consolidate the study environment for the many PhD students and implement the new administrative procedures. In 2012 an international panel evaluated the PhD schools of NAT and LIFE and their recommendations were formulated in the Development and Action Plan for the PhD School Finally, the PhD school had a narrow focus on enrolling 332 new PhD students and ensuring the graduation of 263 PhD candidates. The PhD School s Primary Budget 2013 In 2013, the PhD school was allocated DKK 5.2 m. to support the following activities: International PhD courses offered by the departments, transferable skills courses, incl. the mandatory PhD course Responsible Conduct of Research and the Introduction Course for New PhD Students and other activities within the PhD school, e.g. workshops, meetings and publications. The overall expenditures (budget lines) can be found in the table below, and in the sections: International PhD Courses and Generic PhD Courses on the next pages, where you will find the specific courses. Activity Budget lines DKK International PhD Courses 3,200,000* Transferable Skills Courses 1,800,000 Various Events (e.g. Meetings, Workshops) 100,000 Non-specified Items 100,000 Total 5,200,000 * In the amount is included a sum that is spent on financing international courses in PHD SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2013

5 International PhD Courses Faculty members at the departments are given the opportunity to apply for a maximum of DKK 70,000 for organizing a scientific PhD course on designated topics with contributions from external experts including professors from international universities. The courses offer excellent opportunities for students to be exposed to state-of-the-art knowledge. Most importantly, valuable contacts are established to international experts, which the students can benefit from in their further training and research. By having a mix of students from different universities and countries, important social and professional networks are also established among students with different backgrounds and interests. In 2013 a total of 35 courses were granted funding.

10 Final Evaluation of the PhD Programme Every year, the PhD school evaluates the faculty s PhD Programme by surveying the graduated PhD students. The graduates evaluate elements of the PhD study and PhD plan such as courses, teaching and communication as well as supervision, academic and social environment and other areas relating to their experiences as PhD students at the faculty of SCIENCE. Of the 262 graduates in the period 1 January 31 December 2013, about two thirds replied fully or partially to the survey. The overall impression when looking at the replies is positive. The vast majority of the respondents are content with their experiences as PhD students at SCIENCE. Replies to the questionnaire have been collected in a report on the final evaluation and can be found on the PhD School website: 10 PHD SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2013

11 Study Statistics The PhD School of SCIENCE was established in January 2013 on the basis of the former faculties (NAT and LIFE). Due to the fact that LIFE was also divided between Faculty of Science and Faculty of Health (the veterinary departments) it has been decided only to present data from TABLE 1: AN OVERVIEW PhD Students at SCIENCE 2013 PhD Students as of 31 December 1132 Enrolments (1 January to 31 December) 332 PhD Degrees Awarded (1 January to 31 December) 262 Disrupted PhD Programmes 24 The PhD School of SCIENCE is the second largest PhD educational environment in Denmark and hosts close to 1,200 PhD students who are enrolled at one of the twelve departments of the Faculty. The PhD school aims to attract 332 new PhD students per year which implies that the PhD school will maintain its volume also for the years to come. 262 PhD students graduated in 2013, and this number is expected to increase in the years to come. The number of disrupted PhD programmes at the PhD School is very low. The next few pages display a number of tables that present the aggregated data on population, enrolment and graduation at Faculty level. FACULTY OF SCIENCE 11

12 Population In table 2 you will find basic statistical information on the population. For details on the distribution of the PhD students at the departments please see enclosure 1, pp TABLE 2: BASIC STATISTICS OF THE PHD STUDENTS ENROLLED AT SCIENCE PER 31 DECEMBER 2013 Number Gender Nationality Age at Enrolment MSc Degree Awarded at Study Programme 1132 F: 544 (48 %) M: 590 (52 %) DK: 594 (52 %) EU: 235 (21 %) Other: 303 (27 %) Avg: 28 Min: 21 Max: 56 UCPH: 590 (52 %) Other DK: 90 (8 %) Other: 453 (40 %) 5+3: 1050 (92 %) 4+4*: 55 (5 %) Double degree**: 27 (3 %) * The PhD student is enrolled on the 4+4 scheme (one year before graduation as an MSc candidate) * * The double degree PhD students have a foreign university as host institution. Table 2 shows that the gender balance is close to being equal and that 52 percent of the population are of Danish nationality, 21 % from other EU countries while the remaining 27 % are of a non-eu nationality. A typical PhD student at SCIENCE is 28 years old when commencing the PhD programme and is enrolled on the 5+3 PhD scheme. Finally it shows that 52 % of the population is recruited from University of Copenhagen, another 8 % from other Danish universities and the remaining 40 % enter the PhD programme at SCIENCE with an MSc degree achieved from outside Denmark. 12 PHD SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2013

13 Enrolment In tables 3 and 4 you will find basic statistical information on the 332 PhD students enrolled in For details on the distribution of the PhD students at the department level please see enclosure 1, pp TABLE 3: BASIC STATISTICS OF THE PHD STUDENTS ENROLLED AT SCIENCE IN 2013 Number Gender Nationality Age at Enrolment 332 F: 165 (50 %) M: 167 (50 %) DK: 161 (48 %) EU: 69 (21 %) Other: 102 (31 %) Avg: 28 Min: 21* Max: 53 MSc Degree Awarded at UCPH: 162 (49 %) Other DK: 23 (7 %) Other: 146 (44 %) Study Programme 5+3: 299 (90 %) 4+4*: 6 (2 %) Double degree**: 27 (8 %) * The PhD student is enrolled on the 4+4 scheme (one year before graduation as an MSc candidate) * * The double degree PhD students have a foreign university as host institution. Table 3 shows that the gender balance is equal and that 48 percent of the population are of Danish nationality, 21 % from other EU countries while the remaining 31 % are of a non-eu nationality. A typical PhD student at SCIENCE is 28 years old when commencing the PhD programme and is enrolled on the 5+3 PhD scheme. Finally it appears that 49 % of the population is recruited from University of Copenhagen, another 7 % from other Danish universities and the remaining 44 % enter the PhD programme at SCIENCE with a MSc degree achieved from outside Denmark. TABLE 4: BASIC STATISTICS ON FUNDING SCHEMES OF THE PHD STUDENTS ENROLLED AT SCIENCE IN 2013 Number Fully funded by UCPH Co-funded by UCPH and External Bodies Fully Funded by External Bodies (17 %) 149 (45 %) 116 (35 %) 9 (3 %) Industrial PhD Students (Also Fully Externally Funded) Table 4 shows that the co-funding scheme is the most typical way of funding PhD programmes at SCIENCE. 35 % of the PhD projects are fully financed by an external funding body while only 17 percent are fully funded by the University. The share of scholarships funded by the Industrial PhD scheme is 3 percent, this percentage has been stable for many years. FACULTY OF SCIENCE 13

14 Graduation Table 5 shows the number of PhD graduates in the period from 1 January - 31 December In enclosure 1, pp you will find information on the distribution of the graduates at the twelve departments at SCIENCE. And in enclosure 2 on pp you will find information on the individual PhD graduate. TABLE 5: PHD DEGREES AWARDED AT FACULTY OF SCIENCE (1 JANUARY 31 DECEMBER 2013) Number of PhD Graduates Gender Nationality 262 M: 148 (56 %) F: 115 (44 %) DK: 164 (63 %) EU: 42 (16 %) Other: 57 (21 %) Trends and Observations A comparison of the statistics demonstrates that almost all PhD students are enrolled in the 5+3 scheme and that the age of enrolment is close to being constant with an average of 28 years. However, it also appears that SCIENCE introduced the enrolment on the double degree scheme in percent of the enrolled entered such a programme. It also shows that a higher share of women entered a PhD programme in 2013 (F: 50 %) compared with the PhD population in 2013, where the distribution is F: 48 % and M: 52 %. Of the 262 graduates 44 percent were women. The proportion of PhD students of Danish nationality is changing. If you look at the nationality, it shows that 63 percent of the graduates were Danes, the Danish share of the population is 52 percent and the proportion of Danes enrolled in 2013 has decreased to 48 percent. The proportion of PhD students with a MSc degree from University of Copenhagen seems to be declining 52 percent of the population holds a MSc degree from UCPH which only seems to be the case for the 49% of PhD students enrolled in The funding of PhD projects comes from the university and external funding bodies, primarily Danish research councils, the European Union, other foreign universities and private trust funds and companies. Most PhD projects are co-funded and the number of fully university funded projects appears to be declining. This trend is expected to continue in the years to come. In the future the share of co-funded PhD projects is expected to increase. 14 PHD SCHOOL ANNUAL REPORT 2013

15 The Future Evaluation of the PhD School The merger between the two PhD schools from Faculty of Life Science and Faculty of Science respectively has been completed not only administratively but in all aspects. In autumn 2012, the PhD school was evaluated by an international committee, and based on this very positive assessment an action plan has been established. The main topics in the plan are: quality and flexibility in the enrolment process, quality in supervision and PhD courses, and enhanced focus on the management of the enrolled PhD students. Focus Areas in 2014 In 2014, the focus areas are implementation of the 3+5 enrolment scheme, improving the 4+4 scheme and persuing a higher number of Industrial PhD candidates. The PhD school also has a focus on establishing double degrees with international universities e.g. by exploring the possibilities of international programmes such as the Brazilian programme Science without Borders. Furthermore, the general competencies that the PhD students acquire by following courses are a focus area together with the acquisition of good scientific conduct. Finally, the PhD school has initiated a strategic discussion on how the SCIENCE faculty uses the huge investment that is being made within the PhD area in the best possible way with a focus on implementing the strategic plans of the SCIENCE departments. FACULTY OF SCIENCE 15

16 PhD School Structure The PhD School of SCIENCE is the organizational framework for all PhD students enrolled at the Faculty of Science. The PhD school aims to secure that all PhD students across the faculty are subject to the same rights and obligations and particularly that all elements of the PhD study have a quality that meets the highest international standards. The PhD school strives for an easy, rapid and flexible administration of PhD matters in close collaboration with the PhD coordinators and PhD secretaries at the individual departments.
