PhD Training Programme

Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research / AISSR

All PhDs have to draw up their own personal training programme in consultation with their PhD supervisor as part of their PhD Trajectory Plan. Together, they decide which courses the PhD should take, depending on their previous training.

PhDs should follow (or have followed in the past) sufficient training in Methods, Disciplinary and Interdisciplinary Theory. We advise PhDs to follow a training programme of approximately 30 ECTS in total throughout the whole trajectory. Which courses are relevant for you depends on your PhD trajectory and the programme group in which you are involved.
