The PhD study at iNANO is characterized by its international environment where different cultures meet, and the general atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. The interdisciplinary approach with a focus on high quality collaborations within both academia and the industry provides a dynamic and productive environment and  a strong research tradition for excellence and high impact science.



  • The iNANO center is highly international both in terms of academic staff and enrolled PhD students (approximately one quarter to one third international PhD students). The daily language in research groups with international students is English, and the PhD programme is provided entirely in English. Danes generally speak English very well, and international students will easily manage in English only.
  • At iNANO we have around 120 PhD students enrolled. Together with a large number of postdocs, this is the basis for a strong sense of community between the young researchers at iNANO. To strengthen this even further, iNANO each year arranges an Autumn School as a weekend trip for its enrolled PhD students. The Autumn School focuses both on professional and social aspects of being a PhD students and it provides numerous occasions for socializing and networking.
