PhD Community & Representation

The MHeNs’ PhD Community consists of approximately 300 PhDs, who are represented by six PhD candidates from the three MHeNs divisions. The PhD representatives play an important role as the contact persons for PhD students of MHeNs and gives them a voice in the school. Their role is to facilitate communication between the PhD students, the PhD coordinator, and the MHeNs Board; and to help develop PhD grassroots initiatives. The PhD representatives are taking part in the Educational Committee meetings of MHeNs. In addition, the PhD representative for MHeNs is also member of the Faculty PhD Committee (FPC). The FPC of the FHML advises the Board about the broad domain of PhD related issues. The committee is also a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experiences and the discussion of relevant developments and operational issues within and between Schools/Institutes.
