PhD admission Form I and Form II have been modified in line with the new Doctorate Regulations. Starting from 1 January 2015, Form I must be used to apply for admission to the PhD track. Form I has to be submitted at the start of the PhD track.

Form I

Form I must be accompanied by:

  • Form I (Form I in Dutch)
  • A copy of the student’s passport.
  • A copy of the student’s Master's degree certificate, bearing an original certification stamp. Excerpts from the degree registry may not be used (however, hard copies can be requested from the Education Executive Agency (DUO), but there is a charge for this service). In cases where it is very difficult to obtain a certification stamp (e.g. because the degree was awarded by a university outside the Netherlands), PhD candidates may take their degree certificate to the Beadle’s Office (HG, 2D-02) and have it certified there. If the degree certificate is printed in a language other than Dutch, English, French or German, it must be accompanied by a certified translation.
  • The Training and Supervision Plan
  • Declaration of ethical behaviour (Netherlands Code of Conduct for Scientific Practice)
