The Graduate School’s Key Competencies Training Program

Members of the Graduate School are supported by a wide range of additional seminars and workshops. Our training program in key competencies is designed to equip students with a full range of skills which will improve their effectiveness as researchers, and ensure that they are not only highly qualified but employable in a variety of careers by the end of their studies. 
Our training program has been created especially for our students and is customized to fit the typical situations and problems which occur during doctoral research. We work with highly qualified trainers and experts who have typically worked in the academic field themselves and have a wealth of practical experience.
The Graduate School’s key competence courses are open to all members of the Graduate School. No fees are charged for attending our courses. The courses are held in English or German.
