Read the latest news from the VU Graduate School of Social Sciences.


In order to improve the quality of PhD trajectories, the Graduate School of Social Sciences will start a half-way assessment. The Graduate School invites PhD candidates in the Faculty of Social Sciences who are about halfway through their PhD trajectory to carry out a self-monitoring risk inventory & a short meeting between the Phd candidate and one of the Graduate School Program Managers (Saskia Jans or Alexandra Filius).

It is now possible to request an E-number in order to be able to log in in Hora Finita in case a PhD candidate needs to upload his or her manuscript but does not have a valid VU-net ID anymore. Please contact the Beadle’s office if you need to do so.

Regular breaks from working at your desk stimulates your motivation and productivity. Get out of the office and stretch your legs on the PhD lunch walk! Saskia and/or Alexandra will wait for you at the back entrance of the main building every other Thursday at 12:00. We will start on 9 January 2020. No need to sign up, you can always join!
