Organising social and cultural events are a great way to get to know your fellow PhD candidates from other departments. And the Graduate School always welcomes initiatives that nurture a vibrant academic community. Therefore we have added a form on the website with which PhD candidates can us forward their ideas. Viable ideas will receive financial and promotional support.
