IMPORTANT

'Certificate stop' over summer

From October on, we will use a new system for requesting and providing acknowledgement for activities within the framework of the minimal requirements of the doctoral schools. The procedure will be simplified and digitalized.

In order to allow for sufficient time to digitalize the files / certificates of all current PhD students (> 550), there will be a 'certificate stop' over summer. This implies that from June 18, until October, it will not be possible to apply for certificates. Thus, if you attend activities that could be used to fulfill the doctoral school requirements during this period, please keep all information filed until we start using the new procedure. The documents needed to provide 'proof' (e.g., proof of attendance) will remain largely unchanged.

The only exception on the certificate stop is made for people planning to defend their PhD in 2018. Obviously, if your defense is coming up and you still need some certificates, we will make sure that you receive them. 


CALL

Call for international and intersectoral mobility

Due to financial support of the Flemish Government, the doctoral schools of Hasselt University are able to award travel grants to PhD students and postdoctoral researchers for participation in an international summer school or a short research stay abroad. Also, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers can be awarded intersectoral mobility grants for intersectoral summer schools or research projects conducted at and in collaboration with non-academic institutions (companies, hospitals, …).

The first call for academic year 2018-2019 has been launched. Deadline of submission is 10/09/2018 and the activity (summer school or research stay) has to take place between 1/10/2018 and 31/3/2019. You will receive the result of your application by 24/9/2018.
