Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question, please check if you can find the answer below. If not, please use our contact form to contact us.

  1. I am very interested in the SENSE PhD programme. Could you give me information, how to apply?
    The SENSE Research School is a partnership of nine Dutch universities. Every university has its own admission criteria and procedure, so we cannot give a general answer to this question. For more information about admission, please consult the websites of our partner institutes: http://www.sense.nl/organisation/partners
     
  2. Is there a scholarship for PhD candidates?
    We have collected some funding opportunities at http://www.sense.nl/education/funds
     
  3. I had a TSP on the SENSE website, but I cannot login anymore. What should I do?
    In June 2014 SENSE moved to a new platform - this website and a secured environment: http://myportal.sense.nl/. The login and password of the former platform cannot be used here! 
     
    1. If you did not make a backup, please mail to info@sense.nl to retrieve a copy of your TSP in pdf.
       
    2. If you want to apply for your SENSE diploma based on your TSP on the old website, please mail to info@sense.nl for a SENSE Diploma application form.
        
    3. If you want to update your TSP based on your TSP on the old website, please create an account on the new platform http://myportal.sense.nl/, subscribe to the PhD Roadmap and download the newly developed TSP form in fillable pdf format.
      -   If your TSP was not approved yet, you can submit it for approval.
      -   If it was already approved, you can store it locally and adjust it whenever you want.
      To save you time, the new TSP form is also your SENSE Diploma application form: at the end of your PhD you only have to add information concerning your graduation and send it to us.
