Finishing your doctorate

Content description

As the completion of the doctorate approaches, many questions arise, e.g. on topics such as time and project planning, writing difficulties, role clarification, self-motivation or deciding on the next career step. These and other challenges of the doctoral final phase can be discussed in the workshop – depending on the relevance for the participants.

In addition to short inputs from the lecturer, there is plenty of room for questions, background information and very individual support. In a structured process, the relevant topics are identified, questioned and dealt with in the best possible way. The other participants and the experienced lecturer are important resources that help to get clarity for oneself and to be able to use one’s own strengths.

At the end of the day, all participants have worked intensively on their current challenge and are one step closer to completing their doctorate.
