FULL - Young KLV - To do a PhD, pleasure or burden?

To do or not to do a PhD is a critical question for lots of Master and Bachelor students. For this reason, Young KLV organizes the reocurring event: To do a PhD, pleasure or burden? 

Richard Visser, the dean of research of the WUR, will give a presentation about doing a PhD. Further, two current PhD’ers will talk about their personal experiences. Questions that will be addressed, are for example; What are the basic requirements for a PhD? Where and how can you find the information about PhD positions? What are the selection procedures for the potential PhD candidates? What are the positive and negative aspects of doing a PhD? What will be the next step of a PhD? What is the common career path of a PhD?

Next to the interesting stories of prof. dr. Richard Visser and two PhD'ers there wil be a possibility to have a drink, discuss the evening, meet new people and have your questions answered by the presenters.

This evening will be spoken in English.
