The Graduate School has developed a PhD handbook for beginning PhD candidates. It includes practical guides on how to get started, the EUR doctoral regulations and much more. We consider the handbook to be an essential support tool for beginning PhD candidates. Hard copies of the handbook are available at the Graduate School office (Mandeville building, T15-33) and all departmental secretary offices.
New PhD candidates can request a PhD peer. A PhD peer is a more experienced PhD candidate who will help beginning PhD candidates through the first stage of their PhD. For three consecutive months they give advice about support services, life as a PhD, and much more.
Each year, the Graduate School organises a so-called soft landing programme for new PhD candidates. The programme is organised once a year and starts in September. Register by filling in the form on our website before September 1st.
You can now enrol for the PhD courses of 2018-2019. The Graduate School offers a once again expanded programme, with special attention to the needs of our first year PhD candidates. Our experience has shown that a good start is crucial to the successful completion of any PhD project.
Naziha will be taking over the tasks of communications assistant Menno Verbeek who will depart the Graduate School by the end of August. As secretary, she will be responsible for course coordination and communication, scheduling appointments for the EGSH boards and management, and office management.
