PhD Regulations

In the PhD Regulations of Leiden University it is set out who is eligible to be a PhD candidate, what the tasks of the supervisor and co-supervisor are and which criteria the dissertation has to meet. 

PhD Guidelines

Apart from the PhD Regulations, Leiden University also employs PhD Guidelines that lay down the minimal requirements for the supervision, training and available facilities for you as PhD candidate.

Golden Rules for PhD supervision

The Golden Rules for PhD supervision provide a set of best practices for both you and your supervisors. These ‘rules of conduct’ emphasise the shared responsibility of your supervisor and yourself. They also make clear what expectations may be held by you both.
