The PhD Programme
The ILLC's PhD programme in Logic is one of the most prestigious in the world. The educational programme includes coursework, seminars, colloquia and a visit to a relevant Summer School.
You can consult the list of our current PhD students here.
The student takes part in current ILLC research projects and has all the advantages of this flourishing scientific community. The emphasis of the PhD programme lies on training the student to become an independent researcher. Many ILLC PhD-graduates occupy key positions in academic and industrial environments.
There are two ways of becoming PhD student at the ILLC:
- You get hired as a PhD employee (employed promovendus) by the ILLC. Follow this link for more information about becoming a PhD student as an employee.
- You apply to GPiL and get accepted as a PhD student without employment. Follow this link for more information about becoming a PhD student without employment.
Important! Work permit for non-EU students. If you are not from an EU country, becoming a PhD student at the ILLC without employment involves the application for a work permit by the University of Amsterdam. In order to be eligible for a work permit you will need to prove that you will earn a certain minimum amount of money. This minimum monthly amount will be somewhere around € 1300.00 (gross). You can prove that either by having an appropriate grant from your home country or by providing proof of personal savings. Because legislation in this matter is rapidly changing nowadays, it is not possible to give more detailed information. This matter can either be discussed during your application to the GPiL PhD programme or after your admission.
