PhD information

WIMEK offers excellent facilities to start a scientific career in the natural and social environmental sciences.

The four-year PhD programme consists of:

  • A research component: conducting research under supervision of internationally leading scientists and writing a thesis.  
  • A smaller education and training component.

The programme can also be followed via a so-called sandwich model, which means:

  • About 6 months study and proposal writing at Wageningen University. 
  • 3 years of research at an institute / university in your home country. 
  • Another 6 months data analysis and thesis writing at Wageningen University.
