PHD Council

ABRI line 
What the PhD Council is 
The ABRI PhD council was formed in 2010, and currently consists of four SBE PhD candidates. Since all SBE PhD students are affected by the same regulations, the council - although embedded within ABRI, aims to represent the interest of all SBE PhDs. Hence, we would like to invite you to contact us if you feel like there is something that needs to be addressed (in addition to filling out the annual PhD-survey, see below).

Aside from representing SBE PhDs, the council also organizes PhD lunches, approximately 4 times a year, where we enjoy a lunch while discussing a serious topic that we have encountered or might encounter in our lives as PhDs. Usually the council invites an expert to teach us something new regarding this topic. For 2016-2017 we plan to have informative sessions on work-life balance, the PhD defence day, supervisors, funding, resources of the VU library and the writing process. The council also organises social events about two times per year, such as dinners, and fun activities like bowling and laser tag. For more information, check the schedule below and the ABRI newsletter!
