Research Schools and Academic Institutes

Research Schools aim at collaboration between researchers from different faculties (interfaculty schools) and universities (interuniversity schools).


LOGOS is the council of the national Dutch research schools in the Humanities. This platform was founded in 2008 to exchange ideas about the best ways in which these national research schools could be organised.

It is best for the PhD student to determine in consultation with the supervisor whether and, if so, of which research school it is best to become a member. Usually, membership with a research school means that one can be registered as affiliated members at the other research schools.

Courses and membership

PhD courses are also offered by the research schools. The schools offer training in both methodology and area-specific knowledge. Moreover, they provide PhD candidates with the opportunity to come into contact with fellow PhD candidates from other universities.
Courses attended at Research Schools can be incorporated in the Training and Supervision Plan. 

The contribution for membership of a research school is at the expense of the PhD candidate. Some PhD students may be able to declare the costs of this with their grant, but the costs cannot be declared at the Faculty of Archeology.

Dutch Academic Institutes Abroad

The Netherlands has established several international institutes, which offer scholarships of varying length and amount. These are excellent places to interact with international colleagues and can act as bases from which to organize fieldwork projects. They also offer specialist classes on a variety of topics. As a PhD researcher at Leiden University, you are eligible to apply for a range of available scholarships at these institutes. For more information, see the websites of the specific institution:
