The information below is meant for enrolled PhD students at Wageningen University only. For NUTRIM PhD students, please contact Yvonne Sondeijker.
To apply for a PhD position we would like to refer you to the Wageningen University website:
Starting a VLAG PhD project at Wageningen University - introduction and actions to be taken
Your supervisor submits the project proposal to the secretariat of the graduate school.
In case of the so-called 'sandwich PhD construction' you and your supervisor will have to submit the research plan within 6 months after the start of your PhD study. Normally this will be at the end of your first study period in the Netherlands.
Please check with VLAG if your supervisor has submitted your project proposal.
For new VLAG PhD students a special course is organised: the VLAG PhD week. This course is a compulsory part of the VLAG education programme.
PhD students should spend 15% of their PhD research contract on their education programme. The arrangements regarding the contents of the educational programme are formalised within a Training and Supervision Plan, see below.
