PhD Students


PhD students from TI and partner institutions

TI PhD students and students affiliated to one of the partners of Tinbergen Institute are encouraged to attend courses from TI’s Research Master program. They should register for all courses they would like to attend by sending an email to courses@tinbergen.nl. Fee: 1000 euro per course, to be charged to the student’s department.

TI partners are: School of Business and Econonomics (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), School of Economics and Business (University of Amsterdam), Erasmus School of Economics (Erasmus University) and Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University).

Research Qualification

Many PhD students are directly hired for a specific research project and did not complete a research master program before starting PhD research. A concise set of TI courses gives these PhD students the opportunity to acquire additional and necessary knowledge and skills. Depending on the chosen course package, the amount of credits for this educational program amounts to 40-48 ECTS. Students who complete the educational program qualify for the TI Research Qualification. More information can be found on TI's intranet. 

TI Research Master Graduates

PhD students who completed TI's Research Master program are most welcome to participate in additional field courses during the later years of their studies at the institute. They should register by sending an email to courses@tinbergen.nl. No fees will be charged for PhD students who have transferred from TI's program.
