Before, during, and at the end of your PhD you might have many questions. The goal of this page is to help you find answers and to provide links with useful information. The page is ordered in three stages around the PhD timeline: start, during and, finish.
Do you think information is missing? Help us to expand this page! You can find our contact information here.
Academic writing is an essential skill during the PhD studies. Right at the beginning of your PhD, it starts by writing the obligatory PhD proposal. In the following years, you will need to write your papers and finally your PhD thesis.
We encourage students to start writing as early as possible and to help you in the process, we created a whole page on Academic Writing.
