Individual Support

The pursuit of a PhD encompasses more than writing a dissertation. The GCSC promotes a holistic perspective on the PhD and postdoctoral career stages. Such intense and long-term endeavours are not only academically and intellectually demanding; they also often bring about additional challenges on a social, physical or psychological level.

Our team is therefore always available to listen to any problems you may be dealing with during your time at the GCSC, and offers counselling and support in all individual matters and problems which you might encounter during your membership. We can help you explore possible solutions for your issues in an unbiased, non-judgmental way, and can also refer you to other competent points of contact within or outside of JLU where appropriate.

We guarantee to keep any conversation in the context of our individual support services confidential.
