PhD Candidates


Faculty-Specific Courses (Under development).

  • Graduate School Science and Engineering
  • Graduate School Medical Sciences
  • Federation of Graduate Schools Social Sciences and Humanities

Courses are divided into phase of PhD, however this serves as a general guideline only based on the learning outcomes a PhD student will gain from each course. PhD students are free to take courses and workshops at any time during their PhD programme in agreement with supervisors and their Faculty Graduate School.

* CPS Courses and Workshops are developed in the framework of the PhD Scholarship Programme. All PhD students at the UG and UMCG can participate. PhD Scholarship Students are given registration priority and can benefit from low registration fees.

Research-Based Training

The Graduate Schools have a research-based training programme for PhD candidates. PhD candidates can participate in courses offered at other Faculties (if there is space available and if you demonstrate added value to your research). Registration and course availability is determined by the Graduate School in which the course is offered. Please contact your own Graduate School if you would like to follow a PhD course offered in another Faculty. You may be requested to pay a course fee.
