Doctoral Student Ombudsman (DO)

Last changed: 28 November 2022

The doctoral student ombudsman (DO) at SLU, Monika Appel, provides doctoral students with personalised support and advice. You can contact the DO if you are experiencing problems during your studies.


The doctoral student ombudsman is bound by professional secrecy. They will only share information if you have given your permission. However, this does not apply if your life or someone else’s life is in danger.

The easiest thing to do if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment is to email the doctoral student ombudsman. You only need to write that you would like to book an appointment – there is no obligation to tell them why.
