Why pursue a PhD at the GSMS?

Internationally oriented

At the Graduate School of Medical Sciences (GSMS), we are working with people from all over the world. All of our postgraduate programmes are taught in English and more than half of our doctoral students are international! We encourage our students to complete parts of their programme in partner universities abroad and to build connections across national and cultural borders.

Personalized programmes

We encourage our students to become critical and independent thinkers. At the GSMS, you will follow courses and do research in small groups where personal interaction with your supervisor is an important part of your education. As a result, our students design their research and their programme to meet their own personal interests.

World-class research

The University of Groningen is a top 100 University: our researchers come from all over the world and conduct groundbreaking research in an international environment at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). Research within the UMCG ranges from fundamental to patient-oriented (clinical) research.
