More information Buddy System

The buddy system was established in early 2020. As a new PPHS student, you can request a buddy who will assist you during your first year. Buddies are second- (or higher) year PhD students who are available for any questions you might have. These questions can refer to PhD regulations like PhD proposal, learning agreement, etc., but also to topics in the private domain, e.g. housing, insurance, public transport, clubs, and societies, etc., or any other question you have.
