Being an international PhD candidate, away from home, is a harsh reality sometimes: loneliness, homesickness, difficulty making friends. Plus, the stress about work and the concerns about the future seemed well-plugged-in in our mind.
Let's meet and discuss:
How do we avoid feeling lonely, lost and isolated as an international PhD candidate?
How do we cope with loneliness, homesickness, nostalgia and with the distance from home, family and friends?
How do we settle down and integrate in our new environment (city, work, etc)?
How do we (re)connect with others and create meaningful relationships with them?
How do we deal with cultural differences?
Let's talk about bringing more connection into our new reality!
