6 Foreword F rom 2011, staff at TU Delft worked hard to establish a Graduate School that would play a key role in the training of PhD candidates, the quality assurance of the PhD programmes and supervision. In January 2012, all of the faculties and the University Graduate Office (within the department of Education & Student Affairs) were ready, and the TU Delft Graduate School started at all faculties. In this report on the first two years of the Graduate School, and the University Graduate School (UGS) in particular, we want to sketch a picture of what has been done to date. We are proud of what we have achieved. We have received positive feedback on the school not only from our PhD candidates but also for example from other Dutch universities. This report on 2012 and 2013 addresses the following subjects, among others: Doctoral Education, the counselling provided by the psychologist and the Career Centre, and a numerical impression of the active population of PhD candidates and the UGS as an organisation. While much has been developed and is in place, at the same time, it feels as if we re about halfway through our PhD programme: there is still much to improve, to complete or to extend. What does the future hold? At present, we re putting the finishing touches to the revision of the Doctorate Regulations and the accompanying implementing regulation. With this we hope to make the phase of completing the PhD thesis and the defence simpler and more transparent. The Beadle s Office has been abolished and its responsibilities and 6

7 staff have been merged with those of the University Graduate School, so that the administration surrounding registration and examining is now done from one place. Next year the digitalisation of the forms will be further extended so that this process will finally be completely digital. Furthermore, the focus this year will be on improving the monitoring and management information on the PhD programmes and PhD candidates at TU Delft. For this, we use the Doctoral Monitoring Application system. Time and again in recent years, the recording of meticulous, precise and unambiguous data on PhD programmes has given rise to new questions or points for improvement. In the closing phase of this year, we hope to complete and from 2015, to be able to deliver both a set of standard reports from the Doctoral Monitoring Application and a set of tailored reports based on questions from the Faculty Graduate Schools. In the area of quality assurance, in 2014 and 2015 we will focus on extending and deepening the range of Doctoral Education on offer, as well as developing a vision on the supervision of PhD candidates. In short: there is still much to do! In the meantime, though, we hope that you enjoy reading this report on the outcomes of the first two years.

The first step will be circumstances, psychological problems to start exchanging information and best or communication problems are proving practices with them. an impediment to obtaining a doctorate on time. She also makes a substantive contribution to the DE programme. The psychologist develops and offers training programmes in the area of transferable skills. In this area she works closely together with the career counselor for PhD candidates. In 2012, the key priority was the development of the role of the GS psychologist. In doing so, the aim was to tailor the role as closely as possible to existing methods of working, the provision for students and existing forms of cooperation. The focus last year was on the continuation of the GS psychologist s role (individual and group sessions), refining the range of courses provided in the DE from three to four courses, and paying more attention to intercultural communication. On the basis of the FGS experiences regarding the supervision of PhD candidates, the provision for supervisors has also been 14

On average, each client has had two career consultations and the ratio of national to international students is 1:7. In 2012 and 2013, there were 15
