PsAiKo is the PhD committee of Psychology. From each department there is at least one representative.

Fostering Community and Support for PhD Students

PsAiKo's mission is to establish a sense of community among PhD students. I stimulates the power of connection, education, and advocacy to enrich your experience during this important phase of your academic journey. Here's how PsAiKo aims to achieve these goals:

  • Keep Psychology PhDs informed by supplying and sharing engaging and pertinent information tailored to them. 
  • Social gatherings, such as borrels and PhD Lunches, are organized. These events offer excellent opportunities to meet new people, foster collaborations, or simply enjoy a refreshing drink in a welcoming environment.
  • The well-being of PhD students is prioritized by actively advocating for their interests through ongoing discussions with FMG and Psychology authorities, monitoring relevant policies, and addressing their concerns and challenges.
  • Suggestions are invaluable, so if you have ideas for better serving the PhD community, organizing a workshop or symposium, or need help with social safety or UvA protocols, please reach out. Share exciting events, recent publications, or contribute to existing initiatives!
