The Faculty of Archaeology at Leiden University is the largest academic centre of Archaeology in Continental Europe, and offers a dynamic research environment for PhD researchers.
Embedded in the Faculty’s research groups, PhD projects are carried out under the personal supervision of a professor. The PhD Graduate School of Archaeology is responsible for monitoring the PhD track: the training programme (skills development), supervision, and progress in research.
PhD education and supervision
The Graduate School of Archaeology offers a PhD training programme, composed of a selection of courses and other elements tailored to meet the PhD students’ personal demands. The Graduate School monitors the quality of training and supervision by a system of annual (progress) interviews.
