PhD Support Group

Course type:

Meetings and training/coaching
Duration: Biweekly 1.5 hr sessions
Audience: All PhD students
Module information:

Are you writing your PhD thesis and could you use some inspiration, support or encouragement? Or do you want to learn how to work a little less intensely? Are you unsure about your progress? Then this group may be just what you need.

Every two weeks we meet up to plan the next two weeks. Your plans will always be based on your long-term plan for the entire PhD program. This will make it easier to monitor your progress, your plans will be more realistic and match your way of working. In addition to time management, we will also address other factors of your working life: your work relationship with your colleagues, supervisor and tutor, preparation for presentations, and your future as an academic or in a completely different profession.

The PhD group sessions are led by an experienced trainer/coach. Each meeting is divided into two parts. During the first part we will discuss your planning and reflect on the past two weeks. During the second part of the session the participants are asked to propose topics. The trainer will suggest certain topics as well.

Date and time:

Biweekly sessions on Mondays from 13:30 - 15:00. You can register and join the group at any time. For more information contact the course organisers
