To further stimulate and reward PhD research, the Graduate Schools invites its PhD candidates and recent graduates to submit their work and nominate their colleagues for the "Graduate School Awards for PhD Excellence". The deadline for submission is December 21 (Friday) 2018.
The PhD Council of EGSH is a platform by and for PhDs that are part of the Graduate School. The Council was founded on the premise that the opinions, questions, issues, and thoughts of each of its members merit being heard and discussed. To this end each participating department in the Graduate School has a seat in the Council by means of one representative.
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.
