Training and education for PhD students

26 September 2017

According to article 15 Doctorate Regulations VU University Amsterdam 2015 the PhD candidate shall devote at least 30 EC (840 hours) to training.

Please be aware: Without having devoted these 30 EC you will not be admitted to the PhD ceremony, even when the thesis committee has submitted a positive advice on your dissertation.


Once the supervisor has approved the dissertation, the PhD candidate shall submit a request to the supervisor and counselor of the research institute (see: here) to determine whether all training requirements have been met as agreed in the Training and Supervision Plan. If so, a certificate will be drawn up and awarded to the PhD candidate (article 16).

I guess you already know the PhD_Portal?

On behalf of the dean, prof.dr. Chris Polman, Ellen Dijkstra, secretary
