Certificate

PhD students of the KLI receive a certificate on completion of the entire regular KLI curriculum. The regular KLI curriculum in 4 years comprises:

  • a minimum of 16 EC in 4 years, including the 2 compulsary basic courses*
  • Supervision of dissertation by a member of the KLI faculty
  • Participation in the KLI dissertation series
  • Completion and successful defence of the PhD thesis
  • Completion of the final evaluation form
*For PhD students who started their PhD project prior to september 1, 2013, we can still apply the ‘old’ criteria (the 2 compulsary basic courses + 10 other KLI courses/workshops/meetings). 

To obtain the certificate please notify the KLI office about the following
:
  • Date of the defence of your PhD thesis
  • The title of your dissertation
  • (Co-)promotor(s)
  • Date and place of birth

ECTS

As from 2013-2014 the KLI is using the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System, 1 credit = 28 hours) for all activities in the teaching program. Hence, the criteria for acquiring the KLI certificate have changed in this respect.

The KLI offers a program of coursework, consisting of about 25 courses and workshops each year. The average number of EC offered each year lies between 20-25. Each year PhD students can select, in consultation with their supervisors, which courses (obligatory and elective) they wish to attend. To obtain the KLI certificate a minimum of 16 EC needs to be completed in 4 years, including the 2 compulsary basic courses. 

Please note that EC will only be appointed after participation in an entire course or workshop.

An overview of the allocation of EC for courses in the current Teaching Program 2016-2017 can be found here.
