PhD candidates who register on or from 1 September 2024 onwards will be charged an annual fee to contribute to the costs of their PhD trajectory. If you have started your PhD trajectory before this date, please read the information below.

Current PhD candidates

For PhD candidates who have already started a PhD trajectory before 1 September 2024, a transition period of four years will be maintained. After that, they will also have to pay an annual fee, for which the same conditions apply as for new PhD candidates (as of 1 September 2028). 

Some institutes (resp. Institute for History, LIAS and LUCL) are currently already charging fees. Please contact the secretariat of your institute if you have any questions about the fees and/or the transition period.
