Wege in die Promotion 2024

Most people interested in graduation ask the same questions: Where should I start? How do I finance my PhD-project and most important: Does a doctoral degree really match with my personal interests?

Like every year, the GGL joint forces with several teaching centres and organisations to deliver some answers. In “Wege in die Promotion 2023” we address financing, organisation and the local support network for doctoral candidates at the JLU. The event will be held in German on 26th June from from 1. 00 p.m. to 4. 30 p.m.
