A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your masters degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree. An important part of your PhD consists of preparing and writing your PhD thesis, but its also important that you already go public with your work during your PhD.


A PhD study differs depending to the research domain you are working at. An important part of your time you will do a literature study and you will collect data or samples and make analyses. You will also study methodologies to analyse and interpret your results, to be able to conclude relevant research results. At each part of your PhD you can count on support of a scientific promoter.

The Research Coordination Office accomplishes the preparation and implementation of the research policy of Hasselt University. It fulfils different advisory tasks concerning the organization of the scientific research. The Research Coordination Office also has an inventory and policy informing task due to the current research and it informs and supports individual researchers to the demand and succession of research projects. The secretary of the Research council and the Advisory council of research directors is another task of the Research Coordination Office.

PhD Scholarships:

As a PhD student, you will be working intensively on the preparation of your PhD thesis for four years. You will be involved minimally in other tasks such as teaching assignments or rendering services. In this case, you do not apply for a vacancy, but you make a PhD proposal yourself with a funding body.

You will enter into competition with other applicants with the funding body you contacted, and it depends on the quality of your study results if your application text will be selected for funding.

With a scholarship statute, you can bury yourself undisturbed into the research field of your choice for four years. You do not enter an existing research project, but you write the application text yourself, and thats why you have the opportunity to outline your own research path, in consultation with your supervisor.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
