PE&RC Buddy System

You are here

The PE&RC PhD Council (PPC) has introduced a 'buddy system' to welcome newly arriving PhD candidates. With this buddy system, we aim to facilitate the settling of a new PhD candidate, to make him/her feel welcome and at home quickly. First of all, we want to guide PhD candidates through their first days after arrival in the Netherlands and provide them with clear information about administrative issues that need to be organised during the first days and weeks. Secondly, we want them to find their way more easily in and around the university and learn about the Dutch way of life. The 'buddy' will be a fellow PhD candidate who will support the new PhD candidate on these issues. The buddy will primarily act as a resource person, rather than someone who will be directly involved in actually tackling the issues for the PhD candidate. At this moment, the PE&RC Buddy System is only implemented in Wageningen.
