Research Schools

The national research schools handle part of the training provided to PhD students and also maintain their own research programme. The research institutes of the Faculty of Arts participate in local and national research schools. Each research school has a Director and a Scientific Advisory Board and is governed by one the participating faculties, which functions as secretary (penvoerder).

The national research schools, united in the Council of Dutch Research Schools in the Humanities (LOGOS), have been acknowledged by the Council of Deans in Arts and Humanities (Disciplineoverleg Letteren en Geschiedenis, DLG). The quality of the educational programme and the research performed is assessed during the governing institution’s inspections.


If you as a researcher plan to teach at one of the research schools, you are requested to ask permission from your cluster board, at least 6 months in advance.
