Many doctoral students in the Netherlands are trained at so-called “research schools” (“onderzoekscholen”). These are based upon the Anglo-Saxon graduate school, but have acquired their own specific character in this country. The research schools have their own research programmes and are responsible for the PhD trainings of students of the affiliated faculties. Schools are headed by a director and a scientific advisory board. They fall under the auspice of one of the faculties.
The Faculty of Arts holds the secretary of the following research school:
- the Netherlands Research School for Medieval Studies (NRSMS)
Researchers and PhD students of the faculty institutes are members of a research school in their area. Apart from the Netherlands Research School for Medieval Studies, researchers at the Faculty of Arts participate in:
- the School of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience (BCN),
- the Dutch National Graduate School in Classical Studies (OIKOS),
- the Netherlands research institute and research school for economic and social history (N.W. Posthumus Institute),
- the Netherlands School of Archaeological Research (Archon ), and
- the Netherlands Graduate School of Linguistics (LOT).
- the Dutch Postgraduate School for Art History (OSK)
