On Thursday 26 October 2017 the Antwerp Doctoral School organizes the first Doctoral Day of the academic year. During this introduction day for new doctoral students, we offer info sessions on the doctoral study program, some practical steps in your PhD trajectory, project management and HR-related matters.
We will start the day with an info session about the doctoral study program and the administrative side of your PhD trajectory at the University of Antwerp (what does the doctoral study program entail, which courses do we offer, what are the most important administrative processes?).
The second morning session “Managing your own PhD” will address the topic of project management. When you are just starting out, a PhD might seem overwhelming. During this session, dr. Lebouteiller (FR) will explain how tools used in project management can help you manage the different steps in your doctorate.
The morning will be concluded with testimonials of PhD students.
All morning sessions will be in English!
During the networking lunch you will have the opportunity to get to know your fellow PhD students and share experiences.
In the afternoon, the HR Department of our university will give you information about your personnel statute (only for PhD students with a personnel appointment (‘personeelsaanstelling’) at the University of Antwerp). You will a.o. get the answer to questions like: am I an employee or a student? What about holidays, leave of absence, family allowance, social security etc. You can of course ask your own questions.
We would like to inform you that each doctoral student is expected to attend one Doctoral Day during the first year of the PhD trajectory.
