post-doctoraal opleiding


post-'doctoraal' programme

Under the old system, the term 'postgraduate' had to be avoided because it suggested that the initial university degree (doctoraal) was equivalent to a bachelor's rather than a master's. Under the old system there were several types of 'post-doctoraal' programmes: one-year university programmes of teacher-training; a wide variety of short-term, post-degree courses for the purpose of upgrading professional expertise; longer-term research programmes; and four-year programmes of research leading to the doctorate.
