PhD education and training

Education and training for PhD candidates of the Graduate School of Life Sciences is provided by the PhD Course Centre and the disciplinary PhD Programmes.

Starting from 2018, the PhD Course Centre needs to charge course participants a modest fee. We will handle two types of course fees: one for internal PhD candidates and one for external participants. Please note that you can use your personal course budget of €400/year (€1,600 max) to pay for these courses. This budget is managed by your department (faculty of Science/Veterinary Medicine) or your Division (UMC Utrecht).
