PhD Programme

Ana Lucia Vargas Sandoval PhD candidate at FNWI, 2016 - 2020

'Learning about our world through our observations might be one of the simplest things we do as humans but one of the most complex processes to study. I believe that developing and connecting multiple frameworks about learning is a means to gain valuable insight into the actual processes that make human learning possible. Also, it sheds light on many open learning-paradigms in the philosophy of information, artificial intelligence and cognitive science.'


The ILLC PhD programme, organised by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, is a four-year programme designed to support and guide PhD candidates in their track to become highly qualified scientific researchers in the areas described by the institute's research mission. PhD candidates are given the opportunity to benefit from a rich scientific programme as well as a tailor-made transferable-skills programme.
