ACLC PhD guidelines

Internal PhD candidates

The ACLC document ‘Guidelines for supervisors and PhD candidates’ is an important document for all PhD candidates (both internal and external candidates) and PhD supervisors. It contains a step-by-step outline of what the PhD candidate needs to do to get started, what the candidate needs to do when finishing a PhD and some of the ins-and-outs of working at the ACLC.
Please contact the ACLC office for the latest version of these guidelines.

Becoming an external PhD candidate

It is possible to become a PhD candidate at the ACLC as an external student, which means that you are supervised by ACLC staff, have use of library and email facilities, are invited to all ACLC activities and are awarded your PhD degree by the University of Amsterdam.
