Description

Being a PhD student can be exciting and complicated at the same time, with unique challenges relating to the role as a PhD student: Some PhD students work alone on their dissertation with their supervisor as the only support, while others work in research groups with common goals. It is characteristic for most people that life as a PhD student is often perceived as pressing with high demands on achievement.

Stockholm University has therefore developed two courses for PhD students.

These courses concern the challenges and the high performance demands that PhD students may experience and provide PhD students with hands-on tools to deal with the challenges that they may encounter in their doctoral studies. More precisely, during these courses, you will get access to academic productivity tools and preventative stress management tools to help you finish on time and feel well during your studies.
