Simultaneous activities during the Ph.D.
Working during the Ph.D.
The priority of a Ph.D. candidate is the completion of his/her research training. Upon approval of the Doctoral Board, Ph.D. candidates may be involved in undergraduate teaching, lecturing, tutoring and in clinical activities when compatible with their courses of study.

In any case, scholarship recipients’ wage cannot exceed the ministerial amount of a Ph.D. scholarship (16, 243 euros gross).
