EDIC Mentoring

In their second year of PhD studies, EDIC doctoral students should complete an online form listing in order of priority their four preferences for an IC faculty member to replace the first-year contact person. Doctoral students should choose a mentor who is independent of their thesis advisor(s), and outside of their research area. The EDIC program attributes the final mentor.

The mentor is available to discuss any issues related to your academic progress as well as to give you general guidance. You should meet with your mentor at least once or twice a year so that they can:

  • monitor your progress
  • listen in strict confidence if you experience difficulties while doing your PhD
  • give you a more objective point of view if necessary
  • give guidance for future academic/career choices

The role of a mentor is an important one and it’s up to you to reach out for support … do not hesitate to do so!

Additional support for PhD students

EPFL has set up the Self Care program to support all employees during this particular time caused by COVID 19.

All PhD students, are entitled to benefit from 2 coaching sessions, 45 minutes each, in French or in English (even if you already used this service in 2020). If needed, the coach can contact HR to request an extension to provide 2-3 additional sessions. The sessions are free of charge to the PhD student.

This one-on-one coaching offers support, practical tools and concrete tips which are helpful especially during this particular period.

To benefit from the support please write to the coach at this email address [email protected]. They will get back to you within 24 hours to schedule your first coaching session.

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.
