Obtaining your PhD degree as a scholarship student (Dutch: Bursaal)

Obtaining your PhD degree as a scholarship student at the faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences.

Obtaining your PhD degree as a scholarship student at our faculty is only possible for foreign students.

There are various possibilities for obtaining a scholarship. For further information please see Scholarships for PhD Programmes at the University of Groningen or the International Service Desk. The International Service Desk also provides general information for (prospective) students concerning studies at the Groningen University.

If you obtained already a scholarship, or you have money from other sources, you can write a PhD research proposal and find a supervisor at our faculty. If you have found a supervisor, you can submit an application to the Admission Committee of our PhD programme. In this case you pay a tuition fee € 7,500 (for 2007-2008) (for 2008-2009 the fee will be approximately € 9,500).

The main difference between scholarship students and PhD students employed by the university concerns their legal position. For further information, please see legal position of scholarship students.

PhD positions for scholarship students are published (among other places) in the right column of this website.
