PhD students

DRSTP membership application procedure for PhD students

PhD students can be proposed for membership by the partner organization they are associated with if their promoter is a member of the DRSTP. Membership applications for PhD students have to be accompanied by two forms:

1. a copy of an 'Education and Supervision Form' [opleiding- en begeleidingsplan (OBP)] signed by the PhD student, the promotor(s) and co-promotor(s) (if applicable), and an independent counselor (someone who is not involved with the project and preferably a DRSTP staff member). This form is available at the secretariat of your institute. If you have any questions concerning the procedure you can also approach your PhD Student Council member.

2. a copy of the Registration form DRSTP PhD students (download here).

The Governing Board decides on membership applications. Membership of the DRSTP is automatically terminated if the association of the member with the partner organization in question comes to an end.

For further information see the selection and supervision procedure.
