Download the new PhD handbook, and inform new PhD candidates


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.

In addition to the PhD handbook, we have created a new page on our website for new PhD candidates. The page includes additional information, links and handbooks on the following subjects:

  • Graduate School soft landing programme
  • EUR doctoral regulations
  • Security guidelines for fieldwork
  • Confidential PhD counsellors
