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? 

Prof. dr. ir. Arthur Mol, Rector Magnificus/ Vice-president of the WUR, will give a presentation about various aspects of doing a PhD. Furthermore, two current PhD’ers will talk about their personal experiences. Topics that will be discussed 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 after doing a PhD? 
*What is the common career path of a PhD student?

At 19:00 pm you are welcome to register and have a drink, the first presentation will start at 19:30. After the lecture you are invited to discuss the evening, meet new people and have your questions answered by the speakers.

The spoken language is English.
