During the Doctoral Day, the Antwerp Doctoral School welcomes new PhD researchers, but also offers seminars that could be of interest for PhD researchers who've already started their PhD journey. All PhD researchers are expected to attend at least once over the course of their PhD.

The next ADS Doctoral Day will take place on Thursday 21 March 2024, on-campus (Stadscampus, Hof van Liere) and online via Blackboard Collaborate.

How to access Hof van Liere?

  • Go to the main entrance of the Stadscampus at Prinsstraat 13, 2000 Antwerp.​
  • Walk through the gate and continue through the small square until you reach the roofed entrance of the first building.
  • Enter this roofed hallway (don’t go in the main garden).
  • Go through the door on your left and take the stairs to the second floor, where we will welcome you (room A. Dürer).
  • See this map.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. Send an email to DoctoralSchool@uantwerp.be in case you would like assistance.

The sessions will take place in different rooms at the second floor of Hof van Liere (Stadscampus). The programme includes two parallel sessions in which you can choose a session of your interest. You can indicate the sessions of your choice on the registration form.

Don't forget to sign the attendance lists when you participate on-campus.
