Dual PhD Centre

Combining a job with a PhD? The dynamics between academic research and profession provide the main theme of the dual doctoral programme of our Centre. The programme is conceived for external PhD candidates who like to combine a PhD project with a job or job experience outside of academia. These PhD students are faced with challenges and require a tailored, specific academic environment, especially when the research themes originate from their work environment.

The Dual PhD Centre represents all the Faculties' academic disciplines. We collaborate closely with all the graduate schools of Leiden University and other departments such as the University Training Department and the Study and Student Support Department. More than 60 dual PhD candidates participate in the programme.
