In-residences

Your co-working and co-learning space with immediate reach to your mentor.

The In-residence Experience: How our In-residencies work

The In-residence is your co-working and co-learning space within immediate reach to your mentor. This provides you with the highest flexibility as you work on your thesis. It allows you to get answers, discuss your work and to clarify questions as they arise.


The In-residence can last from one day onwards and extendable further as required. This is your development, your progress, your way.


Each In-residence day usually takes 8 hours, plus time for meals. From past experiences, attendants will spend roughly half of the In-residence day working jointly with the mentor through the thesis and will be using the remaining time of the day for independent work. During the In-residence day your mentor will be available as much as you require. In-residences are work intense. Therefore, make sure that your agenda has been cleared so for you to focus on your thesis.


You can sign up for your In-residence either as a local In-residence, a virtual In-residence or ask for targeted on-demand support once in need. For those who are on a self-study path, we provide the DoctorateHub Clubs and Training Sessions for you to connect with your peers to jointly progress and support each other.

Self-study collaborative Working Sessions

Do you prefer to obtain feedback on your latest drafts and develop your research further with peers? It takes time and practice to become a fluent researcher, develop the ability to establish a research focus and to derive a narrative from there. Wherever you are in this process, you might want to team up with peers to not feel as though you are walking alone. The DoctorateHub collaborative writing sessions are a great place to team up with peers. You can join collaborative writing sessions or set one up that is tailored to your needs.

Virtual In-residences

The virtual In-residence experience provides you with a virtual co-working/co-learning space with immediate reach to your mentor in the same way as our traditional face-to-face In-residence does. You are connected with your mentor 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 questions as they arise.

The standard individual rate for the virtual In-residence is €500,- per day. Daily individual rates include a virtual co-working and co-learning space with direct access to a mentor during core worktimes.

On-demand Support

The on-demand support package is ideal for those that work through their research at a less than constant pace and rhythm.

On-demand support can be provided as written feedback on your thesis drafts, as well as through targeted video-orientation calls to help you in your planning and decision-making on how to take your research further. This allows you to get feedback, guidance and direction on current developments and prepare for your next actions.

Each on-demand interaction has a fee of one Brain Coin (BC). Brain Coins are a currency used at the DoctorateHub to book on-demand services in a flexible way.

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.
