Doctoral Student Quality of Study Life Survey – Fall 2015

Your JMDSS executive team would like to get your feedback on various aspects of your academic life. The information that you will provide will help us to identify areas that need to be improved and will assist us to develop a plan of action for the coming academic year. Your feedback will not only allow us to communicate to decision makers in the PhD program and the JMSB your problems in a concise and organized manner, but it will also enable us to convey PhD students’ problems and concerns to policy makers strongly and effectively. Therefore, your participation in this survey is essential and crucial. Click here to access the survey.

Without your participation, we cannot obtain reliable information and we will not be able to improve the conditions of the different aspects that surround you during your studies.

The questionnaire is anonymous, so you should not indicate your name anywhere. We believe that the information that you will provide is very important, not only for the JMDSS, but also for you.

The JMDSS executive team would like to thank you for your time in advance.
