Going Abroad during your PhD

On the 21st of may we arranged our third PhD Night. This time the topic was “Going Abroad during your PhD”, a topic relevant to most of us. Tropical rain poured down outside Fyrhuset, but inside we enjoyed beer, pizza and the company of good colleagues. Representatives from the Section for Internationalisation at OsloMet kicked off the evening’s presentations. They held a very informative talk on different grants and support structures for teaching and research abroad. This presentation contained a great deal of relevant links and points of contact, and you can find the full presentation below.

Then came a series of peer-presentations from kind PhD colleagues who kindly shared their own experience with the rest of us. The stories included animal research in Spain with continued collaborations, how to deal with sensitive data when crossing borders, and slice of life illustrations of family life abroad. It was both enjoyable and informative, and we are thankful for the presenters for taking time out of their busy schedule to talk to the rest of us.

Ph.d.-night: Going abroad

For and by ph.d.-students at OsloMet

Time: May 21st 2019, 16.30

Place: Deiglig Fyrhuset, Pilestredet 52


Welcome to our third Ph.D.-night at OsloMet where we address topics that are relevant for ph.d. students across programs at OsloMet. The goal of these events is to mix academic refill with an opportunity to be social outside of working hours. The program for this event will be in English.

We have gone through all feedback from the last Ph.d.-night and hope we have managed to prepare a program that is both informational and entertaining.

The theme for this evening is Going abroad. We have invited speakers from the section for internationalization at OsloMet to give an overview of the possible funding sources. In addition, we will have ph.d. candidates who have been abroad tell us (in short) how they planned, financed and experienced their stay in Canada, USA and Spain.

There will be time for questions after each talk.
