General PhD regulations

The general PhD regulations apply to all PhD researchers of the University of Antwerp. The new regulations came into force on 20 February 2024 and apply to decisions yet to be made with regard to ongoing and new PhDs. For ongoing PhDs, decisions can - without obligation - be altered in light of the new regulations.

These regulations also contain the charter for PhD researchers (code of practice), the integrity charter for PhD researchers 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 and points systems

The faculty PhD regulations are additional to the general PhD regulations and apply to the PhD researchers of the faculty/institute involved. The points system for the doctoral study programme varies per faculty/institute and is explained in the regulations.​
