PhD programme seminar

The PhD programme seminar is a two-day seminar for all new PhD candidates enrolled in the PhD programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.


Networking is important both within academic research and in other careers. It is also important to meet and discuss how it is to be a PhD candidate with others that are in the same situation. The PhD programme seminar is a great place to meet and network with your peers. One of your fellow PhD candidates may be a future colleague or the one you need to hire.
