Admission procedure self-funded PhD candidates

Self-funded PhD candidates conduct research in their own time and at their own expense. A LUCAS professor at the Faculty of Humanities will act as their supervisor. After four years, they should be able to defend their thesis and receive their PhD from Leiden University.

The admission procedure is described here. Please note that copies of certificates need to be certified. This can be done by the institute or university that issued the certificate, or by a notary.
