PhD Consultation Hours

11Apr2018 25July2018 16:00


The AISSR Bureau initiates the institution of weekly PhD Consultation hours for discussion of problems that arise from the point of view of PhD scholars. The 4 AISSR Programme Group Managers will carry out these Consultation hours according to the scheme on the next page. As PhD candidate you can choose to discuss with whichever Programme Manager you feel most comfortable.

During your PhD trajectory you might encounter problems that you would like to talk about, but you do not know with whom. Think of problems related to time management, stress, physical burdens, loneliness, cultural differences, homesickness, conflicts with your supervisors, harassment and unfair treatment.

The 2017 PhD survey and discussions with the PhD Sounding Board flagged the lack of sufficient channels to discuss sensitive supervision and PhD related issues. To address this sense, we aim to make the channels already in place more visible and will, additionally, introduce the PhD Consultation Hours.


There is no registration needed, but in case you have any questions, please send an e-mail to:
