What about doing a PhD?

Want to go further than your Master?

Or have you already got some working experience in a field which you would like to contribute to through research?

Then a PhD might be right up your street. Those who do PhDs have a passion for research! Scientific research allows us to push the boundaries of knowledge and improve how we apply it. Doing a PhD shows that you can make a significant, independent contribution to your discipline.

The title of "doctor" is the highest rank you can achieve at a Flemish university and defending your PhD in public is the ultimate proof of independent, original scientific research.
