The Graduate Center provides advice and counseling for (prospective) doctoral researchers. You are welcome to contact us with your questions regarding your doctorate.

Advice & Counseling

From the initial consideration of pursuing your own doctoral project to the choice of career path after the successful disputation: the doctorate is a phase in which you make important decisions and set the course for your own future.

We often provide advice on the following topics:

  • Administrative matters (registration, regulations, etc.)
  • Application and supervision
  • Career planning inside and outside academia
  • Financing your doctorate
  • Managing your supervision relation
  • Project planning and management of a doctorate
  • Stays abroad: Planning and financing
