Registration requirements for ICO membership PhD Students

ICO distinguishes two categories of PhD students: (a) PhD students who obtained a research master's degree, and (b) PhD students who obtained a regular master's degree.

PhD students with a research master's degree who wish to register in ICO have to meet the following criteria:

  1. The PhD students research proposal has been approved by ICOs scientific committee. Approval is the responsibility of the supervisor, who is recommended to submit the research proposal several months prior to the start of the project. The scientific committee then reviews whether the proposed research has sufficiently been elaborated, and whether it fits the ICO research themes.
  2. The PhD student is employed by one of the ICO universities, and working on his or her research project in a faculty or institute participating in ICO. In case the employment of the PhD student has not yet officially started, but the definitive candidate for the PhD position is known, this candidate is allowed to register based on a request from his or her supervisor.
  3. At least one of the supervisors participates as a staff member in ICO. In certain cases a PhD student may be granted admission, while his or her supervisor no (longer) participates in ICO. In that case, the participating university is required to assign a second supervisor to the PhD research project who does participate as a staff member in ICO.
  4. The PhD student has at one's disposal a minimum of 2,25 years net ('netto tijd') for doing research. This includes hours for education and supervision.
  5. The thesis research has a minimum scope of 3 years, and a maximum duration of 5 years.
