On 21 June, all VU PhD students received an invitation by e-mail to participate (at the e-mail address registered in Hora Finita). If you have not received an invitation, please send an e-mail to mailto:email@example.com and you will receive the link. The survey will be open until 19 July. Several questions in this PhD survey are the same as in PhD surveys conducted at other Dutch Universities.
We thank all respondents for filling in the survey. The PhD Monitor survey is now closed. RuigrokNetPanel analyzes the data and reports back to us. In September, we expect to be able to publish this report here.
These surveys will be combined in a benchmark, to compare and gain insight into working conditions, supervision, educational opportunities, work pressure and career perspectives of PhD candidates at the national level.
We are hoping for a large response and value your reactions. For more information see PhD monitor.
