Suggest a PhD course

The courses offered by the Graduate School of Health are developing on an ongoing basis. If you find that a course is missing, you are welcome to contact the head of your GP (Biomedicine, Clinical Medicine, Forensic Medicine and Odontology/Oral Health or Public Health,) or the PhD administration and suggest that a new course is being set up.

Suggestion and approval of new courses

If you suggest that a new course is being set up, we advise you to find out whether (other) students are interested in your course suggestion.

A number of formal requirements must be met before a course can be approved:

  • A course leader must agree with the relevant GP leader on being responsible for the course
  • The course leader must submit a course suggestion form (see right sidebar) and a draft programme to the graduate school
  • Based on the recommendation from the head of the GP, the graduate school management must approve the set up and the academic content of the course

We advise you to allow plenty of time for approval of your proposal for a new course. New courses are approved according to the following time schedule:
