PhD Boot Camp, Spring 2017

As a PhD student, we want you to have an excellent time at KTH where you thrive academically,
professionally, and personally. To reach this goal we need to train and work to improve the quality of your PhD program. Would you like to contribute towards improving the quality of PhD studies? Would you like to effectuate a positive change at KTH?

The PhD Boot Camp is organized so as to give you workshops on the rights of a PhD student and how to represent PhD students at KTH centrally or at your school, department, or division. If you are not (yet) a PhD representative but you are curious and want to know more about your rights and how to have a great time as a PhD student at KTH, then you too should sign up for the Camp.

At the PhD Boot Camp, on the 4th of May, you are provided with a welcome sandwich and coffee, followed by presentations, panel session, workshop and lunch. We will introduce you to the work of student and trade unions and the various routines of being a PhD representative at KTH. You will also get to know other PhD students, members of other PhD Councils and PhD Chapter Board and become part of a network of PhD students and PhD student representatives.

Where: Room V22 (map)
When: 4th of May, 09:00 – 12:00

There are plenty of health benefits with practicing yoga, both for your body and mind! In addition you get to hang out with your PhD chapter friends from your or different institutions, a great way to get new inspiration!

The session will be held by a professional instructor (in English, of course) and you can use the lockers and shower facilities in connection with the session (bring a towel if you want to shower). There will be yoga mats you can borrow during the session. Dress comfortably (like for a work-out). It will be a perfect break during your day and you can start the afternoon with lots of new energy!
