PhD - coverage of expenses in connection with a change of research environment

As a PhD student employed at AU, you are not entitled to reimbursement of any additional expenditure in connection with a study abroad period, as PhDs are not covered by the agreement on official travel. However, your faculty/department/centre may decide to:

  • Reimburse certain reasonable and documented additional expenses (e.g. meals/refreshments and transport costs)
  • Pay hourly and daily allowances

Reimbursement of expenses or payment of hourly and daily allowances may not exceed the applicable official travel rates.

Detailed reimbursement guidelines are defined by the faculties/departments/centres themselves.

On the right, you will find the contact information for your faculty if you have any questions about the above.
