We organize a varied program of measures to support you throughout the PhD process, which we have bundled under the mottos “networking”, “independent research” and “personality development”. Our qualification program also comprises measures offered by our cooperation partners which are especially suitable for doctoral researchers.

If you have any suggestions, questions, or special wishes concerning our training program, please use the feedback function or contact our team at the Graduate Center.

Please note: Only workshops in English language are listed on this page. For the complete list of all workshops of our qualification program for doctoral researchers please refer to the German version of this site.

News for parents:

PhD candidates with children can receive financial support for childcare during workshop hours, when taking part in a course organized by ProUB.

For further information, please contact Friederike Voet in advance.
