Download the Graduate School annual report 2017


The annual report gives an overview of the Graduate School's activities and course evaluations in 2017. In addition, it describes our goals for the coming year. Contrary to previous years, this annual report is a bit shorter with a simpler design, making it even easier to read through.

Some highlights:

  • 400.000 euro EU Erasmus+ grant
  • 40+ courses
  • +35% course enrolments
  • 4.2 average course evaluation (on a 5-point scale)
  • +35% more unique visitors to the website

2017 was another good year for the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities. We were proud to receive an Erasmus+ grant to work with other European graduate schools to improve multidisciplinary doctoral education combining social sciences and humanities. We are also excited by our ventures into the new world of e-learning and by our still growing offer of methodology courses.

Our PhD community continued to thrive and embarked on a peer-to-peer programme to help each other making the most of their PhD-years. We are happy that our Supervisory Board has recognised the quality of our school and granted us with another five years of funding.

The future looks bright and we are looking forward to maintain and expand our spirit of collaboration and academic excellence.
