How our In-residencies work

In-Residence Oporto Experience

The Oporto In-residence provides you with a co-working and co-learning space within immediate reach to your tutor. This provides you with the highest flexibility as you work on your thesis. This allows you to get answers, discuss your work and to clarify doubts as they arise. The Oporto In-residence can last between just one and to up to ten working days, and extended further as required. This is your development, your progress, your way.

The Oporto In-residence takes place at the Candal Business Park with accommodations available within walking distance at the Mercure Porto Gaia Hotel. The Candal Business Park and Mercure Oporto Gaia Hotel just 10 minutes from Oporto’s picturesque riverside with its Port Wine Cellars, old buildings and stunning views. A great place to clear your head and get a little exercise between focused thesis sessions. The Oporto In-Residence is suitable for both, group and individual attendance.

In-Residence Virtual Experience

While initially conceptualized as a traditional physical In-Residence event, in the current Covid-19 situation we decided to extend this format to the virtual world. Consequently, the virtual In-Residence experience provides you with a virtual co-working and virtual co-learning space providing you with immediate reach to your tutor in the same way as the Oporto In-Residence does.

You are connected with your tutor during the entire In-Residence day via videoconferencing, instant chat, and email. This provides you with a real In-Residence experience so to get answers, discuss your work and to clarify doubts as they arise. While different in the format it caters for your development, your progress, your way – and at your location, wherever it is.


Attendance fee of the In-Residence starts at €500,- per day for individuals that also currently use our coaching and mentoring service. The standard individual rate is €750,- per day. For groups a discount may apply, or additional tutor/s provided to focus progress.

Cost include a co-working space with direct access to a tutor during core worktimes from 9:00 to 17:00. Costs of travel, accommodation and all meals are at each participant’s expense.

As an alternative to the Oporto In-residence we also run three-days hands-on Workshops that can run around the world and are designed to focus on research execution and thesis crafting. Learn more about our workshops here.

What our Scholars say


Charles O.

Thesis stage: Addressing Viva Feedback

Great and excellent In-Residence at DoctorateHub, Porto, Portugal! Very well organised and particularly useful learning and information delivered in a brilliant style. I would highly endorse and recommend the Porto Workshop to research students that are interested in improving their research thesis and in growing their research “scissor”. Overall, the learning environment was conducive and Porto, a beautiful city.
