Current PhD candidates

All the information you need about your PhD programme. The information applies to standard PhD candidates, with a four-year track, who are employed by the university (unless stated otherwise).

For other PhD candidates other rules may apply. Please consult the quality assurance plan for PhD research, training and supervision, or contact the Graduate School of Geosciences or your supervisor(s) in case of questions.

You may also find the information for PhD supervisors on this site useful, as it includes their rules and regulations and a time schedule of the PhD track.

The UU website for PhD programmes also provides useful information, among others, the UU PhD-manual. Please note that the UU manual does not include rules, regulations and facilities of individual Graduate Schools such as the GSG.
