ASH PhD candidates are offered a PhD training programme made up of two components: 1. Skills development courses at the Graduate School of Humanities, and 2. Courses in specific subject areas at a National Research School.
Candidates can choose from four generic categories of skills training courses: organisation, cooperation and networking, communication and presentation, and preparing for the future (in or outside academia). Each category includes both required and elective courses.
There are fifteen national research schools in the field of the Humanities. PhD candidates select a research school in consultation with their supervisors. The schools have their own teaching programmes, which can be found on their websites.
