Can I do a Ph.D. at CCKE?
Utrecht University offers talented PhD students from around the world the opportunity to complete their doctorate in Utrecht.
They receive expert tuition and guidance, and - if necessary - grants to cover their expenses. For detailed information about
all the formal and procedural aspects see
Doctoral degree (PhD).
In general Ph.D. students in the Netherlands are employed by the University. Financial support is provided usually by national or
European grant organizations. As a direct consequence all regulations regarding work and residence permits apply. This
complicates things for Ph.D. students from outside the EC, unless the appointment is part of some formal mutual agreement between
governments or when the student is providing for its own finances. In the last case there is no formal employment with the
university which simplifies the case relatively.
