All PhD candidates in the Wageningen University PhD programme, participate in a graduate school. To become a member of Wageningen School of Social Sciences (WASS), PhD candidates must complete a registration form that can be found on this webpage.
In addition, PhD candidates* have to a) complete a Training and Supervision Plan (TSP) within 3 months after the start of the project and b) submit the PhD project proposal within 6 months, to become a member of the school.
WASS frequently organizes welcome lunches during which the procedures important at the start of the PhD project are explained. New PhD candidates will automatically receive an invitation for the next welcome lunch session.
*Except for external PhD candidates that are not involved in the WASS PhD education programme.
