Research Master's programme in Philosophy, Groningen, THE NETHERLANDS

http://www.rug.nl/research/gradschool-philosophy/research-master/

At the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen, we offer an 
advanced Research Master?s program, entirely in English. Applications for 
the 2013-2014 academic year are now welcome.

http://www.rug.nl/research/gradschool-philosophy/research-master/

The program covers all areas of strength of the Faculty, which include: 
epistemology, logic, philosophy of science, argumentation, philosophy of 
mind; ethics; political, social and cultural philosophy; history of 
philosophy, especially Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern. For a list 
of current faculty, see here:

The program has two very attractive features from a practical point of 
view:

Partial Funding as a TA. All students are given the opportunity to act as 
Teaching Assistants (TA) at the undergraduate courses offered by the 
Faculty, and receive a remuneration of around EUR 400 per month for their 
work as TA?s. This means that all students in the program are offered 
partial funding.

Fully Funded PhD positions. Every year, the three best students graduating 
from the program are offered fully funded PhD positions at the Faculty for 
a period of three years. Hence, the program offers ideal conditions for 
those wishing to pursue a research career in philosophy.

The Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen is consistently rated as the best 
in the Netherlands both for research and for teaching, and is widely 
regarded as one of the main centers for analytic philosophy in Continental 
Europe. It offers a lively, international environment in one of the most 
pleasant university towns of Northern Europe. See the promotional video
