PhD students

DRSTP membership application procedure for PhD students

PhD students are proposed for membership by their supervisor. Two forms are required to apply for membership:

1. a copy of an 'Education and Supervision Plan' [example 1 VUA - example 2 FOM] opleiding- en begeleidingsplan (OBP)] signed by the PhD student, the promotor(s) and co-promotor(s) (if applicable), and an independent counselor (a person who is not involved with the student's research 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' which can be downloaded here.

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

For further information see the selection and supervision procedure.
