Meet the new Graduate School PhD Council 2018-2019


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.

For the academic year 2018-2019, the current council are focusing on two main agendas:

  • mental health of PhD candidates, and;
  • organisational improvements of the PhD Council and representation.

PhD Council Committees

Initiatives by the PhD Concil are organised in several committees

  • Knowledge Committee
  • Organisational Committee
  • Mental Health Committee
  • Social and Media Committee
  • Welcome Committee

So, if you have a question, problem or good idea, do not hesitate to contact one of them; every idea and initiative is more than welcome!
