This is the blog of The Dutch PhD Coach, written by Arjenne Louter. The blog is filled with tips and useful information, meant to help you finish your thesis successfully and in time. Because I believe that each PhD student can finish his or her thesis. Sometimes with a little support. And that support I can give you. Have a look around, I’m looking forward to your reaction!
