Prepare yourself for alternative career paths with the PhD-Career Event on September 27th.
Dr. Geertje Janssen (‘People in Science’ advisors) will provide an interactive afternoon to help you kick-start your career after your PhD. She will talk about career options outside academia, the value of your PhD and how to increase your employability.

 General information

Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed

From January 1st, 2017 the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%

• However, the Research Management course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice

• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.

  • The course fees of research master’s studentswill be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
  • Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
  • However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

Some courses have less course days: SPSS 3 days, Survival Analysis 2 days, Management 2 days, Presenting 1,5 days and also other may be shorter as indicated on the website.

Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.

All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.

Those who register for a course, symposium or workshop agree with these financial conditions.
