Doctoral Programme

National PhD Welcome Day 2023

Greetings from the organising team of the National PhD Welcome Day 2023! We are thrilled to invite you to an event for new doctoral candidates on September 27, 2023, at the Abbaye Neimenster in Luxembourg city.

Doing a PhD can be a challenging experience, but it's also an exciting opportunity to meet and connect with fellow students from various disciplines. That's why we are designing this event to network with your peers, build valuable relationships, and gain new perspectives that will help you navigate your PhD journey successfully.

At the event, you'll have the chance to meet other first-year doctoral candidates, hear from experienced PhD researchers, and participate in engaging activities and discussions. We believe that this event will not only help you make connections but also provide you with useful insights that will enrich your doctoral path.
