Graduate School of Social and Behavioural Sciences
Welcome to the Graduate School of Social and Behavioural Sciences at Leiden University. Our Graduate School aims to provide a stimulating environment for conducting PhD research at an internationally competitive level within one of the excellent research programmes offered by its institutes.
Each year very talented Dutch and foreign junior scientists seize the opportunity to conduct their research within our premises. Our Graduate School strives to build a community of independent scholars, keen on doing groundbreaking research and trained to become innovative teachers and leaders.
Our research is rooted in society and aims to deliver relevant societal contributions for an increasingly safe, healthy, sustainable, prosperous and fair world. We greatly value the scientific and social importance of the research our PhD candidates perform, and ultimately support them to reach their goals.
We hope that all PhD candidates at FSW feel supported by the Graduate School and enjoy working in the competitive, yet collaborative, environment of our Faculty!
