A career in academic research
Our Individual PhD-track is designed for students who wish to qualify for a career in academic research.

Our program
The Individual PhD-track combines tailored courses with one-to-one guidance and supervision. In the first two years the emphasis is on coursework, given a viable research proposal. In the second part of the track, emphasis shifts towards the dissertation project itself. Your personal course program consists of a number of mandatory courses organized by Nyenrode, supplemented by courses at other institutions. The Nyenrode courses cover topics such as philosophy of science, preparing a research proposal, and research methods. In individual sessions, we will offer you one-to-one guidance, to safeguard your progress and process.  More information

You will pay a fixed fee for each year of € 4.000,- . Please note that the costs of books, conference visits, overnight stays and meals are not part of the fees.
Fees for students admitted before January 1, 2016

Admission is only possible when you have found a Nyenrode professor who is willing to supervise you and who endorses your research proposal and planning. In addition, your proposal needs to have been reviewed externally, and deemed relevant, by two renowned researchers who are not employed by Nyenrode and are active in the area of expertise your proposal focuses on. Please keep in mind that Nyenrode does not offer scholarships of its own and does not facilitate NFP scholarships. Admission criteria & procedure
