General PhD regulations (RvB 31.03.2020)

The general PhD regulations apply to all PhD students of UAntwerp. The new regulations came into force on 31 March 2020 and apply to decisions yet to be made with regard to ongoing and new PhDs. For ongoing PhDs, decisions taken while the old PhD regulations were still valid, can - without obligation - be altered in light of the new regulations.

These regulations also contain the charter for PhD candidates (code of practice), the integrity charter for PhD students and supervisors affiliated with the University of Antwerp, and a list of the study areas in which a PhD degree can be obtained at the University of Antwerp.

Faculty PhD regulations en points systems

The faculty PhD regulations are additional to the general PhD regulations and apply to the PhD students of the faculty/institute involved. In addition, each faculty has a points system, explaining how points are allocated to activities. Consequently, the points system for the doctoral study programme differs per faculty/institute. 

For some faculties the faculty points system are not yet available (depending on when your new faculty regulations are approved). In theses cases, the faculty points system is part of the faculty PhD regulations and/or the additional guidelines (below).

  • Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical en Veterinary Sciences points system (FR)
  • Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciens points system (FR 12.12.2018)
  • Associated faculty of Nautical Sciences points system (AFR)
  • Faculty of Law points system: see Pintra (art. 18)
  • Faculty of Sciences points system (FR)

Additional guidelines

The additional guidelines below are still valid for the moment, but will disappear as soon as the revised faculty points systems are available (see above).
