The Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGSH) has invited The Actor Society (Het Acteursgenootschap) to re-enact cases of harassment in academia, all based on real life experiences at EUR and other universities. After the play, different academic stakeholders and the audience will discuss what you can do if you find yourself, your colleagues or members of your team in such situations.
By facilitating doctoral education to over 500 PhD candidates in a total of 10 academic fields the Graduate School nurtures research excellence and a vibrant academic community. To provide aspiring PhD researchers with an efficient application service, the Graduate School uses an online application system. Visit our admission page for a step-by-step guide.
The Graduate School is an Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) joint venture of the Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences (ESSB), the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC), the Erasmus School of Philosophy (ESPhil) and the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS).
Nowadays, Open Science & Open Access are buzzwords in academic publishing. As researchers and universities are expected to fully publish in Open Access in 2020, the biggest hurdle on their way is the paywall. Learn all about this paywall and how to deal with it during the Erasmus Open Access event 2018.
The Graduate School has developed a PhD handbook for beginning PhD candidates. It includes practical guides on how to get started, the EUR doctoral regulations and much more. We consider the handbook to be an essential support tool for beginning PhD candidates. Hard copies of the handbook are available at the Graduate School office (Mandeville building, T15-33) and all departmental secretary offices.
New PhD candidates can request a PhD peer. A PhD peer is a more experienced PhD candidate who will help beginning PhD candidates through the first stage of their PhD. For three consecutive months they give advice about support services, life as a PhD, and much more.
