Is it possible to complete from the programme from abroad?

The programme is organized in 8 residential modules, consisting of 3-4 consecutive days each. This setup makes it perfect also for participants residing outside the Netherlands, as they only have to travel a limited number of times to Rotterdam. The 4 mandatory modules in year 1 take place every 2-3 months.

How do I get in touch with a potential sponsor / supervisor for my project?

If you have a personal contact with a professor, you may contact them directly to see whether they are interested in your project and/or acting as a supervisor for your project. If you don’t have a connection yet, it is best to send your (short) proposal to us directly, along with a shortlist of potential supervisors, so we can help you get in touch with the right person.

I have already completed part of a PhD programme elsewhere; can I transfer these credits to your programme?

This will depend on the nature of the courses followed and any exemptions will be decided on a case-by-case basis. However, the modules are organized in such a way that they build upon one another, so following the entire course programme is recommended.
