Supervision and Mentoring
Set in an intellectually stimulating and international context, the IPP provides extensive supervision and mentoring structures. The programme offers a multi-track supervision and mentoring system revolving around professorial supervisors, postdoctoral mentors and peer-group coaching. Post-doctoral mentors provide advice not only on the dissertation, but also on scholarships, applying for conferences, writing articles and similar activities. Find further information on the various services for our members here and on the special support for international students .
The IPP offers a rich and promising environment for pursuing your PhD and guarantees support and guidance in all matters relating to your PhD throughout the three years of membership. Personal supervision is complemented by participation in our curriculum:
Regular colloquia with fellow doctoral researchers, professors and post-docs allow an ongoing discussion of one’s own and other projects from an early state of inception to the submission of the PhD thesis.
Master Classes and Workshops with high-ranking academics from around the world offer doctoral researchers the chance to present their projects to specialists in the field, benefit from their feedback, and establish valuable international contacts and cooperations.
A broad spectrum of courses conveys essential skills in time management, in writing styles and techniques, in the handling of software tools for publishing and managing bibliographies or in formatting for Word or LaTeX. Take a look at the current study calendar for further information.
