Research The Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG) Education

PhD training

For all PhD students in the Faculty of Arts, admission, training and supervision are organised in the Graduate School for the Humanities (GSH), in close cooperation with the ICOG director and researchers.

As members of the Graduate School for Humanities, PhDs follow a 30 ECTS training programme, which they compile together with their supervisors according to their specific needs. PhD students can choose from a number of in-house courses, modules taken at their affiliated national research schools, and other training opportunities. The courses offered by the Graduate School are usually focused on generic research skills.

As PhD student you are also expected to join one (or more) of ICOG’s five Research Centres and one (or more) of such a Research Centre’s theme groups or Centres of Expertise. Thus you can participate in reading groups, lecture series, conferences or workshops. You benefit from the institute’s research dynamics and actively contribute to it yourself. You are always welcome as well to make suggestions to improve ICOG’s or its Centres’ programme and organisation. Please discuss your intended affiliations with your supervisors and then contact the group you wish to join.
