Doing a PhD at RIBES means that you have the opportunity to receive training, develop your personal and professional skills, and prepare for your future career. All PhD candidates who do research at the RIBES are automatically enrolled in the RIBES Graduate School. The aim of the Graduate School is to offer all RIBES PhD candidates a complete programme and support for academic development in this phase of their career.
Training for all RIBES PhD candidates
All PhD candidates draw up a Training and Supervision Plan (TSP) during the first three months of their trajectory, in which they describe their planned courses and training. All RIBES PhDs take part in the following three activities:
- Introduction morning at the Faculty of Science
- Basic Didactic Skills (or a comparable educational course)
- Scientific Ethics
PhD candidates who also complete the rest of the RIBES Graduate School programme (see below) receive the RIBES Graduate School certificate upon completing and submitting it.
Training at other research schools
Our PhD candidates are encouraged to be active members of the scientific community and/or follow appropriate courses to contribute to their research project. This can also be done at other (national) research schools or graduate schools. This is fully supported by our institute.
