Piled Higher and Deeper: Still in Grad School” is the sequel to the film adaptation of the popular comic strip “Piled Higher and Deeper” by Jorge Cham. The film takes a smart and humorous look at the world of academia through the eyes of four grad students, and features real academics (including a Nobel Prize winner!) in many of the roles.

The PhD Movie 1 takes a humorous and poignant look at four graduate students as they grapple with research, being a teaching assistant and finding balance in their over-worked lives. The PhD Movie 2 looks at themes of competition in research, overcoming writer’s block, and finding your voice.
Please join The PhD Movies screening on 27 January 2016 organised by Prout | PhD Network Utrecht and the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS).

Prout lectures on income taxes, PhD candidates can save money!

On 22 April, Prout organized two tax lectures for PhD candidates. For international PhD candidates, Dennis Reins and Patricia van Dam from TaxDirect  discussed the 30% tax ruling, the M form, and costs that can be deducted from income tax. Marianne Both from Both advocatuur gave a lecture for Dutch PhD candidates.

Many PhD candidates can save a lot of money by applying for middeling, as they experience a strong fluctuation in income when they start their PhD. To find out more about this arrangement, follow this link!
