Application & Admission Criteria

Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture and Society

Student profile

PhD and MA students preferred; BA degree required.  Selection of applicants is based on academic achievement, relevant work experience and commitment to the field of sexuality as demonstrated in the application form and submitted letters of reference.  

The Summer Institute is open to students with a focused interest in sexuality research, MA and Ph.D. students, students at one of the Dutch research schools, and students or professionals from NGO's engaged in AIDS and/or sexuality research.

Students with no previous experience in the field should consider taking our introductory course prior to applying to the Summer Institute. 

Since 1995, we have had over 385 students from 40 different countries. Twenty-five percent of the participants were professionals working for NGO's. The others had diverse educational backgrounds; in the social sciences (anthropology, sociology, psychology), women's studies, history, public health, or human sexuality studies.
