External Ph.D. students

General Information

This site is intended for people who would like to do a Ph.D. at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences.

An External Ph.D. student is defined as someone who performs his or her doctoral studies without being employed by or having a training place at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences.

Anyone with a master’s or graduate degree may decide to pursue a Ph.D. (see for the exact rules and regulations in this context the Regulations of the Conferral of a Doctorate). A professor must be willing to supervise the research project and the writing of the thesis, and to act as promoter. With regard to the admission to the promotion and the quality of the research and the dissertation, the same requirements apply as with the other Ph.D. students. External candidates must also comply with the Ph.D. Regulations and the administrative procedure.
