Core Course (1st semester)

To ensure that they provide the optimum accompaniment to your PhD work, the core courses are subdivided into two modules.

The basic module will provide practical help with all organisational and structural problems pertaining to your postgraduate studies. The subject-related module which builds on this basic module will cover methodology, theory and key skills relevant to the respective disciplines (faculties 03, 04 and 05), and there is the possibility to discuss problematic sections of your own dissertation. The aim is to teach the fundamentals of the philosophy of science, project planning, and designing research projects, as well as to help you, in planning your dissertation project, to recognise potential problems early and solve them.

Intermediate Course (3rd semester)

The intermediate course builds upon the contents of the introductory course and should help to obtain a consistency in the doctorate students' tutelage. In contrast to the introductory course, which is offered every winter semester and covers the generalities of the PhD programme, the intermediate course is devoted to the specificities of each doctorate students' dissertation. This course will not only cover techniques for writing different pieces of text such as introductions, conclusions and body, but also specific sections of the course participants' dissertations.
