Wege in die Promotion 2023

"Does a doctoral degree really match with my personal interests?"
"What do I need for a successful start?" 
"How do I finance my doctoral degree/my PhD-project?"
"How can I get my doctoral degree at JLU?"
"What support can the JLU provide during my PhD-project?"  


If you have asked yourself these questions before, come to the event "Wege in die Promotion".

In order to make it easier for future doctoral candidates to start their doctoral studies and to inspire those interested in a doctorate, the three Giessen Graduate Centres GGS, GGK/GCSC, GGL, GGN, the ArbeiterKind. de initiative and the Forschungscampus Mittelhessen (FCMH) invite students from all faculties to the event "Wege in die Promotion".
