Courses fitting the individual PhD candidate's needs and featuring skills and topics that complement personal expertise and contribute to the project, under the condition that the programme group approves this participation.
The agreement between AISSR and GSSS regarding the participation of AISSR PhD in GSSS Master courses:
If you would like to participate in a GSSS Master course, please discuss this with your supervisor and contact Alix Nieuwenhuis (A.E.Nieuwenhuis@uva.nl).
PhD candidates may suggest other courses than those offered in the AISSR-GSSS programme or research masters of the GSSS to the promotor. These will also be registered in the PhD Trajectory plan and formally approved by the directors of AISSR and GSSS. These could concern courses organised by other research schools like Nethur and CERES. These courses will have to be financed from the programme group budgets.
The PhDs taking advantage of this opportunity have to: gain approval from their supervisor / be registered as students, also in SiS / participate fully, i.e. also complete attendance requirements and are not allowed to “audit” Master courses / inform AISSR about the course they would like to follow and not contact GSSS Lectures directly.
