PhD Support Services
Coping with conflicts and challenges during the PhD studies
During your PhD studies, you may encounter different challenges, such as conflicts with your supervisor or colleagues, difficulties in finishing the PhD thesis, stress and exhaustion, decrease of motivation etc. There are several possibilities to get support in such cases.
The PhD program coordinator Nina Fabjančič is available as a neutral contact person you can turn to confidentially. She will direct you to the suitable university support services and/or organize external support (coaching, mediation etc.).
You can also contact the support services at your university directly:
