Check that you meet the entry requirements, including English language requirements, as described on this page. Contact the academic member of staff - or the department they teach in - for an informal discussion about your research interests and to establish if they are willing and able to supervise your research. Find out more about the supervisory relationship and how your supervisor will support your research. Draft a research proposal.
Interdisciplinary Doctor in Interdisciplinary Studies If your research topic is interdisciplinary in a way it crosses faculty boundaries, you can choose to apply for an Interdisciplary PhD. For practical reasons you will however still be linked to a faculty: Before you begin Before you can start a PhD research, there are some important things you need to consider: Do you really want to study for a PhD degree?
It is not an easy task. You should expect it to take 4 to 6 years of full-time work and sometimes even longer. Do you have a Masters degree?
The default requirement for admission as a PhD student is a Masters degree or equivalent in a relevant field. Derogations for candidates without a Masters degree are unlikely to be granted unless the candidate has very strong research or professional credentials.
The ultimate decision about the eligibility for PhD research resides with the Faculty in which the research will be conducted.
Do you have a supervisor? You need a supervisor "promotor" in Dutch. This is a professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in your research field who is willing to guide and evaluate your research.
We strongly advise you to increase your chances by going through our research pages, to see whether you can find a match between your research interests and research at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Do you have funding?
You need sufficient financial means to support yourself during your stay in Brussels. You can also check the Belgian Portal for Research and Innovation.
Other administrative requirements The supplementary faculty regulations can specify additional administrative conditions. Have a look on this website about studying in Flanders. It gives you some basic information on Flanders, the educational system, study and research programmes, funding opportunities and gives you a check list of things to bear in mind before coming to Belgium.
To be admitted as a PhD candidate, candidates must hold one of the following diplomas: The supplementary faculty regulations determine which specific diploma is required for each PhD.
Supervisor and subject Besides meeting the above mentioned diploma conditions, candidates must, in order to apply for admission as a PhD candidate, also have a supervisor and have laid down their choice of subject.
You can also have a look at this list of subjects. For these subjects supervisors are explicitely looking for candidates.
Keep in mind however that funding is not guaranteed. Click here for more information. There are 2 procedures: There is no deadline for applications.PhD in Economics.
PhD students take 16 courses, roughly half of which are spent acquiring the core analytic tools of the profession (microeconomics, macroeconomics, and quantitative methods), with the balance spent applying those tools in particular fields of specialization. For more information about graduate studies at the University of Ottawa, please refer to your academic unit.
Doctoral students at the finance division typically specialize in financial economics. The first year of the program is dedicated to core courses that include a two-semester microeconomics sequence, a two-semester econometrics sequence, and one-semester courses in accounting and finance.
A doctorate (from Latin docere, "to teach") or doctor's degree (from Latin doctor, "teacher") or doctoral degree (from the ancient formalism licentia docendi) is an academic degree awarded by universities that is, in most countries, a research degree that qualifies the holder to teach at the university level in the degree's field, or to work in a specific profession.
What is a PhD? Doing doctoral research and writing a doctoral dissertation leads to the highest academic degree awarded at Flemish universities: the degree of doctor of philosophy.
