DOCTORAL SCHOOLS

Support for doctoral candidates is organised at Hasselt University in three doctoral schools, which offer clear guidelines to and organise activities for young researchers, such as training sessions and workshops on discipline-specific and cross-cutting skills, career development, and the strengthening of the international orientation of PhD candidates. Other researchers, such as postdocs, can also make use of this framework.

This support is partly made possible by the Flemish government subsidy for the organisation of activities to support young researchers. Each of the doctoral schools sets minimum requirements that need to be met before the PhD defence can take place. You will find all the relevant information on the website of the doctoral school to which your faculty belongs.
