A PhD degree programme at the GSTS includes participating in active research environments, including stays at other, mainly foreign, research institutions. Going abroad gives you the opportunity to make international contacts and gain new perspectives on your research. The main purpose of your stay is to further your research, to experience a different research environment and to network within your field of research.
When planning a stay abroad, several matters are important to consider to get on top of the practicalities. To help facilitate the planning process, we have collected important info, links and inspirational stories on this page.
Please note that there may be different procedures for how travel expenses are settled at the PhD programmes. Please ask your local PhD secretary if you have any questions in this regard - contact information can be found under the the GSTS programme page by clicking on your programme.
Remember to register your stay abroad in the PhD Planner system.
