Doctoral Working Group
The Doctoral Working Group (DWG) is a lively group of doctoral studens who represent the interests of the doctoral students from KU Leuven at Kulak, Ostend and Bruges and are supportive of PhD students and internationals. DWG acts on three different levels: academic, social and communication. Please visit the DWG wiki, register for email lists and get involved. Contact: Hannelore Franck
The DWG has set-up a Buddy system to welcome and guide new PhD students and internationals (also predocs and postdocs). We advise the inviting professor to inform the DWG contact point for buddies about the new researcher several weeks before his or her arrival.
