PhD movie marathon – Wednesday, 24th of February, 19:00– 22:30 – Vestingbar         

It’s only February, but this one of the top events of the year – The PhD movie marathon

On Wednesday 24th of February, join us for the screening of PhD comic the movie at the Vestingbar on the campus. The PhD movie takes a smart and humorous look at the world of academia through the eyes of four grad students, and features real academics (including a Nobel Prize winner!) in many of the roles. Click here to view the trailer.
The PhD Movie 1 takes a humorous and poignant look at four graduate students as they grapple with research, being a teaching assistant and finding balance in their over-worked lives. The PhD Movie 2 looks at themes of competition in research, overcoming writer’s block, and finding your voice.

This a collaboration of TGS and P-NUT. This event is open to members and non-members of P-NUT. Sign up now! Registration is limited to 40 seats, first come first serve!
