In the first year, all incoming students are assigned a faculty member from the EDIC program commission to guide them through the first-year program requirements. Incoming students should not hesitate to reach out to their contact persons for any questions or support they might need prior to their arrival on the campus and throughout their first-year. Advice may especially be valuable in the spring semester where fellowship students are deciding on their lab affiliation.
For additional help:
EPFL has set up the Self Care program to support all employees during this particular time caused by COVID 19.
All staff members, including PhDs, are entitled to benefit from 2 coaching sessions, 45 minutes each, in French or in English, without having to submit any request.
The objective is to allow each employee to maintain the right personal and professional balance, during this particular period that is likely to continue for some time.
The coaching sessions offer support, practical tools and concrete tips to cope with the difficulties typical to the situation we are all currently facing.
This service is strictly confidential and no prior authorization is required. This service is provided by external coaches who are bound by strict confidentiality agreements. EPFL will not have access to names nor any information shared with the coaches.
To benefit from this support, please contact your coach directly: [email protected].
The Happy-at-Work team will get back to you within 24 hours to schedule your first coaching session on Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp.
