PhD candidates at the Faculty of Humanities work on their doctoral theses in one of several capacities with variable possibilities for financial assistance. They have to pay 1250 Euros a year for participation costs. If the PhD candidates are employed by the university, this is paid for. Directors of the research institutes are entitled to wave (part of) this 1250 Euros in case the PhD candidate has no financial assistance.
