TNDR Teaching Survey

on Thu, 2017-12-07 15:26

Hej everyone,


TNDR, the PhD council of the faculty for science and technology, is conducting a small survey to see how teaching for PhD students is handled at different departments in the faculty. We are aware that there are significant differences, but to address the problem properly and achieve a more fair/equal treatment of all PhD students, we need to have an overview of where the problem lies and where action is needed.


We would therefore appreciate if you could take your time to fill in the survey under the following link:


The survey is very short (2-3 min only), no problem to fill it in between to sips of coffee!


Thank you!


Jakob Spiegelberg

Chair, TNDR
