Academic and administrative contacts in the various faculties, institutes and departments are there to help you with particular questions or aspects relating to your PhD. The administrative contacts can help you with practical questions about admission procedures for PhD students, training credits, annual progress reports, submission, language, defence and so on. The academic contacts can help you with content-related questions (e.g. whether certain activities can count towards your doctoral study programme). The academic coordinators/contacts also serve as a contact point if you have any problems. When it comes to the Antwerp University Association faculties, the research coordinators are the first point of contact.
