Admission as PhD

Important information

The department of Cultural Anthropology welcomes students that want to pursue a PhD. At Utrecht University, PhDs do not pay an admission fee and are often appointed as employees. There are no PhD funding schemes offered by the Faculty of Social Sciences or structural PhD grants/competitions that offer students funding. There are therefore two routes by which you can pursue a PhD at the Cultural Anthropology department of Utrecht University. These routes are related to the different funding possibilities. Each of these routes will be explained in detail below. Before taking a closer look at the routes, we advise you to first examine whether your profile matches our research identity and requirements.
