At Maastricht University, a PhD degree is not just a study but also a serious research project that adds new knowledge to a given field. As a PhD candidate, you will spend most of your time conducting original research and writing a dissertation. You might also follow courses relevant to your research or have teaching responsibilities as well. Most candidates take four years to complete their dissertation and earn their degree.
