There is no regular curriculum for PhD students. PhD students have 4 years to complete their research project and finish their thesis. In consultation with their professor they can enrol in courses for their personal and professional development during this period, e.g. supervising students and scientific writing. Also following courses in the area of their specialisation is possible, within national or international research schools or networks.

Not all students are placed within a national school. A couple of schools and networks that PhD students can be part of or can follow courses at, include:
