DS General Assembly

The General Assembly for The Doctoral Student Guild will be held on Dec 6, 12.00-13.00 in Scaniasalen, Student Union Building, Johanneberg. DS will serve you lunch if you register before Dec 1. At the meeting the DS board will inform you of some current issues for PhD students, such as the generic skills course package that will be introduced at Chalmers, VISA issues for international PhD students, and we will also showcase our new web site. The meeting will also discuss the question of freedom from liability for last year’s board.
