Global PhD Support

If you need support during your PhD research, you can participate in the Global PhD Support programme.

Get a PhD buddy

Through Global PhD Support you can discuss these matters with an experienced buddy, someone who is personally assigned to you. The buddy offers you a social connection, where you can talk about anything you’d like with a good listener. From experiences and concerns, to more practical topics. Having a buddy is an opportunity to reflect on issues that are going on in your daily life.

Receive help from experts

Behind the buddy, a whole team of experts is also available for all PhD candidates. When necessary, your buddy can refer you to a professional. There is for example a licensed work and organisational psychologist who focuses on young PhD’s; a career advisor; an expert on insurance; legal matters; health insurance.
