Support and supervision

During your PhD process you may face several challenges. Your PhD mentor has already been through the whole PhD process and can therefore help you focus on the process and reciprocal relationship and draw attention to potential bottlenecks. Your mentor can also act as a sounding board. If you encounter any problems with communication between you and your supervisory team, he can play an independent role. After an introduction meeting with your PhD mentor, We advise you to meet your mentor at least 2 times a year. Please consult "PhD mentor 3mE".
