Current PhD candidates

This page provides all the information you need as a PhD candidate at the GSG. The information applies to standard PhD candidates, with a four-year track, who are employed by the university (unless stated otherwise).

If you want to know more about rules for other types of PhD candidates, please consult the GSG quality assurance plan "Towards a successful PhD journey" 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 pertaining to 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.
