PhD students


PhD students affiliated to Tinbergen Institute

TI PhD students are encouraged to attend courses from TI’s Research Master program. Registration for courses is required: please fill out the registration form. Fee: 1.500 euro per course, to be charged to the student’s department.

Research Qualification

Many PhD students are directly hired for a specific research project and did not complete a research master program before starting PhD research. A concise set of TI courses gives these PhD students the opportunity to acquire additional and necessary knowledge and skills. Students who complete the educational program qualify for the TI Research Qualification. More information can be found on TI's intranet. 

TI Research Master Graduates

TI research master graduates working as PhD students at one of the partner institutions are most welcome to participate in additional field courses during the later years of their studies. They should register by sending an email to courses@tinbergen.nl. No fees will be charged.

PhD students not affiliated to Tinbergen Institute

Under certain conditions and subject to approval by the Director of Graduate Studies, PhD students not affiliated to Tinbergen Institute are welcome to attend courses. External applicants will be admitted if they meet some equivalent of the TI course entrance criteria. Capacity restrictions apply to all courses, and are particularly relevant for core courses. Registration is required: please fill out the registration form. Course fee is 1.500 euro per course.
