Support for PhD candidates

Building a network of friends and colleagues

During your PhD, there may be times when, for various reasons, you might feel anxious and all alone. To offset this possibility, a support network of colleagues and friends is essential. Building this network of friends may not be so easy at first, especially if you are new to the area. The best way to make new friends is to join activities and organizations (sports, leisure, culture, religious, etc.) that promote the things that you enjoy doing.

The PhD Network of the UT (P-NUT) is an association created and run by PhDs with the aim to Inform, Represent and Connect all PhD candidates at the UT.

In troublesome times, it may be good to share your concerns with nearby colleagues and staff from your department. But when you need an outsider to listen to your situation or the challenges you are facing, you can always contact TGS.
