HOW TO OBTAIN A CERTIFICATE?

In the future, an online application, My Doctoral File, will be developed. You may consider this as a kind of database in which you can enter every course, certificate, etc. For now, you must keep everything in a map yourself.


Certificates for courses

 

Participation in a


1. courses organized by the Doctoral Schools at Hasselt University


Always sign the attendance form which will be available during each session of the course. You will receive a certificate from the Doctoral School after you filled out an online evaluation. The link for the evaluation will be send to you after the last session of the course.


2. courses organized at Hasselt University (not by the Doctoral Schools) or at another university/company/SOC….


If you want to receive a certificate from the doctoral school, check if this course is eligible for the doctoral school program before you follow the course by contacting Stefanie Kerkhofs (e-mail).


If this course is eligible and you want to receive a certificate, send the following documents by e-mail to doctoralschools@uhasselt.be:

  • Fill out this document
  • A certificate of attendance with date and duration of the course must be presented(scanned version). If the certificate of attendance is not availabe, the organizer of the course of your promoter signs a standard form to confirm your participation.
  • A confirmation that this course is eligible for the doctoral school (e-mail Stefanie kerkhofs)

1 course = 8 hours. If a specific course does not last for 8 hours, you may participate in similar courses and add up the hours to eventually fulfil the requirements.
For every 'minimal requirement' you need to apply this strategy

Any questions? Please contact Stefanie Kerkhofs
