For all PhD students: please participate in the national survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your PhD trajectory


Dear PhD candidates,

This year the COVID-19 pandemic has been an important part of our lives. To what extent has the COVID-19 pandemic influenced doing your PhD, your mental wellbeing, and possibly giving informal care? Results from previous surveys show that the mental wellbeing of PhD candidates, also of the one who are giving informal care, need attention. The current COVID-19 pandemic could be a factor influencing our lives. We would like to ask you to let us know which impact the COVID-19 pandemic has on your PhD trajectory by filling in this survey.  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__leidenuniv.eu.qualtrics.com_jfe_form_SV-5Fe4kRJ7ekeT4I6Xj&d=DwMFAw&c=XYzUhXBD2cD-CornpT4QE19xOJBbRy-TBPLK0X9U2o8&r=ztbqtQfShI5b8XmVNQkxC6-5JBMKGW2-11kMg0sDW_4&m=qsWOe399c4O-ZYexXAzrHCMBbop3VJxMguIj4-ariKk&s=DCv7V9Jq1YCYFMxhF3V2Gwbh9wyiOuAUixD_Qu5byOk&e=
