The committee organises a PhDebates session once every even month and regular PhDrinks

Every fourth Thursday of the month the committee organises an academic or social activity to bring together the PhD candidates of the Faculty. These activities include regular PhDrinks and PhDarts and the open discussion sessions of the PhDebates.

The PhDebates sessions tackle broad themes relevant to the research being carried out by PhD candidates.  In each session, an expert on the topic is invited to introduce the theme and its problems where after 2 PhD candidates give short presentations on their insights, offer provocations, and discuss their issues related to this theme. This is followed by a general, open discussion.

As a bottom-up initiative, PhD candidates are encouraged to pitch ideas for these sessions on issues that matter to them.
