Joint PhD Introductory meeting

Your career as a PhD candidate at Leiden University or Leiden University Medical Center starts with the introductory meeting. These meetings are organised 5 times a year, and are compulsory for all new PhD candidates, preferably within the first 2-3 months after registration.

First of all, the Executive Board will welcome you as a new scientist. Subsequently, several speakers will present relevant subjects that will help you to become part of our academic community, for instance a presentation on scientific integrity and on courses especially for PhD candidates. You will also have the opportunity to meet some PhD candidates who are already working on their doctoral research and who will share their experiences with you.


These meetings are organised on the following dates:  

  • Monday 23 January 2017

  • Tuesday 28 March 2017

  • Monday 12 June 2017

  • Monday 18 September 2017

  • Monday 27 November 2017

New PhD candidates will receive a personal invitation and can register here.

Mingle and meet

Of course there is plenty of time to mingle and meet fellow PhD candidates who have also recently started their doctoral research during drinks
