There are four types of PhD students among the ASC Community’s affiliates:
- Resident ASC PhD students: (co-)supervised by a researcher at the ASC and who have a desk and access to facilities at the ASC when in the Netherlands
- Non-resident ASC PhD students: (co-)supervised by a researcher at the ASC but do not have a desk or access to facilities at the ASC when in the Netherlands (i.e. they have the use of facilities at the university where the ASC (co-)supervisor has a professorial position instead)
- Non-resident non-ASC PhD students: supervised by a researcher who works at the ASC but whose PhD supervision work (in this case) is paid by another university
- Other PhD students: doing their PhD on a topic related to African Studies
