Guide for doctoral students
The purpose of this guide is to advise doctoral students on how to successfully negotiate the rites of passage as a PhD student and help them find their way in the academic world. It is also intended for those who are still unsure about embarking on a doctorate. Here they will find information to help them make their decision.
The starting point of this guide is the experience acquired in the context of a mentoring programme for women embarking on a thesis: StartingDoc. This programme explores the structural aspects you must be acquainted with to ensure the successful completion of your thesis, such as the various stages of the academic career, organising work between research and teaching, researchers’ rights, creating networks, colloquiums and publications, balancing professional and private life, etc. This guide deals with all the questions discussed at the StartingDoc meetings.
