PhD Council GSLS

The PhD Council GSLS consists of representative PhD candidates of the programme committees of the 15 PhD programmes. The PhD Council makes up the voice of the PhD candidates and aims to improve the quality of PhD education and the regulations related to their graduation.

The PhD Council advises the GSLS management team and the Board of Studies on the quality of doctoral education. Their activities include the evaluation the PhD research environment and PhD programmes through an annual survey, and organisation of an annual PhD Day and additional PhD events. The council meets once a month, together with the GSLS coordinator of doctoral education. The chair of the council is a member of the Board of Studies. 

You can contact the PhD Council for questions, suggestions or advice concerning your PhD journey. They are here for you, as fellow PhD candidates. Together, you can also decide whether your representative should raise any issues at the PhD Council meeting. Check out below who the PhD representative of your PhD programme is, including their contact details.
