The International Social Science Council (ISSC) has recently opened a call for applications for talented PhD students in the Social Sciences to participate in the week long seminar on “Global Social Governance” from 28 July – 3 August in London, UK. The twenty selected Fellows will have all expenses covered. Deadline for applications is the 2nd of March 2014.
The Graduate School is streamlining its curriculum. We intend to build on intense feedback of students in the existing courses. For the remainder of this academic year, therefore, PhD students will only have to pay a registration fee of 20 euros for each separate course.
This month, the Graduate School applied for the Graduate Programme grant (€ 850K) of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The review procedure will be concluded in August of this year.
The course module 'Qualitative Research' consists of four interrelated courses which cover essential elements of any qualitative research project.
