Ph.D. students who are working in one of the four philosophy departments of the four Dutch technical universities are in principle members of 4TU.Ethics. However, to become an actual member – affiliate or full – some further steps need to be taken.
Once the 4TU.Ethics coordination team is made aware of you having accepted a PhD position at one of the four philosophy departments, they send you a welcoming e-mail with a package of further information. You can always e-mail the coordinator yourself to start this process ().
Most importantly, the information package explains that you need to devise a 4TU.Ethics Education Plan that you send back to the coordinator, who then sends it to 4TU.Ethics’ chair for final approval. As soon as this has been provided, you are officially a member.
For further information about the difference between affiliate and full PhD membership, please go to the PhD Education Page .
