In Germany, 30-50 % of all PhD-students do not finish their doctoral theses. There are many reasons for that, e.g. poor time and self-management, miscommunication with your supervisor or not balancing your work and free time properly. We will tackle many challenges you might come across on your way to your degree and provide you with methods and strategies for a less stressful study experience. In this workshop, you will learn how to focus on finishing your PhD, right from the beginning.
Topics to be covered:
Time and self-management: how to set and define goals and methods to stick to them
Multi-tasking: research, publishing, guiding MA-students - how to do it all
How to motivate yourself and how to deal with demotivation
How to structure work and the writing processes
How to interact and work with your supervisor
Administrative Business: do not lose sight of formal procedures like “acceptance as a PhD-student”
Dos and Don’ts for PhD-students
