Meet your Graduate School – Start of your PhD

Tuesday 16 April 2024
Pieter de la Court
Wassenaarseweg 52
2333 AK Leiden

This event aims to provide the information to help you get a good start at our Faculty.

Our Dean will open this event with a personal welcome to you all. We can imagine that the start of your PhD can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming, what do you have to do and know and where you can find it? In this meeting, we will try to give you some more clarity.

You have the opportunity to connect with us and engage with fellow PhD candidates from various institutes at FSW.

Additionally, you'll gain insights into the structured courses, the FSW PhD platform, and receive valuable information from our PhD psychologist and the Confidential Officer. This event provides a platform for you to ask any questions you may have. It's a distinctive chance to familiarize yourself with the staff members who will be supporting you throughout your PhD project.

We are looking forward to meeting you there!
