There are different modes of associating with CHEPS for your Ph.D. project.

For individual PhD students, CHEPS charges an admission fee of €5,000, 50% of which will be returned to you on completion of the PhD degree. We are serious about our commitment to the project and our supervision of your work. We expect the same from you and consider the admission fee as an expression of this commitment as well as an incentive (the 50% return) to complete the degree. Students may seek funding from national or international sources, some of which are mentioned in this portal.

In some CHEPS projects, special arrangements have been made with respect to Ph.D. students and their fees. AiOs and OiOs from the University of Twente and staff members from other institutions with which we have a special agreement are exempted from fees.
