Doctoral Summer School

The LERU Doctoral Summer School is an annual event organised by different LERU members. The aim is to provide doctoral candidates with unique professional and personal development opportunities beyond what they are generally exposed to in the course of their PhD training. By creating an exceptional and truly international, intercultural and interdisciplinary meeting of bright young minds, the Summer School creates a highly stimulating learning experience which is of long lasting value to the participants’ future careers.

The Summer School is open to registered PhD candidates of LERU universities. The selection progress is organised per university.
