Research Nieuwenhuis Institute for Educational Research About us

PhD Council

This council represents all PhD and Bursary students at the department of Pedagogical and Educational Sciences (PedOn) within the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences (BSS, University of Groningen). Since there are many PhD students involved with divergent topics, this council was established to facilitate communication between PhD and Bursary students of the different sub-departments (Pedagogy; Youth Studies; Special Needs Education and Youth Care; Educational Sciences; Teacher Education)

We take it upon ourselves to note of the needs of our fellow PhDs and have put together a comprehensive welcome guide to help new PedOn PhD’s navigate the ins-and-outs of PhD life here in Groningen. Additionally, we regularly gather and share relevant information for PhD and Bursary students, and also organize social activities throughout the year. For any PhD-related questions or concerns, you can always reach out to us at our brand new council email address:
