The faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences has its own PhD Council comprised of PhD representatives of each department within the faculty. The aim of the PhD Council is to support the social and professional needs of the PhD community within the faculty. This is done by liaising with the FSBS Board of Studies, Faculty Board, PhD office and the Board of Research on the circumstances PhDs find themselves in, among others by conducting a yearly survey.
How do we achieve this?
Examples of matters the FSBS PhD council has worked on so far include the welcoming of new PhDs to the faculty, the quality of supervision of PhD candidates, commitment to the UU’s Train-Zone-Map, the impact of COVID-19 on PhD trajectories, diversity and inclusion within the faculty, and issues pertaining around the mental well-being and workload of the PhDs within our faculty. On top of that, the PhD council sends out a monthly newsletter that covers news updates, events, workshops and much more.
In case you would like to raise a matter with the PhD Council or want more information you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with the representative of your department.
