Welcome to Heidelberg! – Reception and information session for (international) doctoral students


New doctoral students generally arrive in Heidelberg with many questions about registering and enrolling, finding housing, obtaining health insurance, funding their doctoral studies, learning German and much more. The Graduate Academy would like to welcome you to Heidelberg and provide you with the information necessary especially for your first weeks and months at the university!

At our "Welcome to Heidelberg" event and reception we inform you about our own services as well as about other useful addresses at the university. You will have the opportunity to meet the Graduate Academy team, to ask questions and to get to know other doctoral students.

Primers for Predocs – Strategies for a successful doctorate

When you are doing your PhD you are managing a huge project – this means you don’t just need competences in your field of research but also other relevant skills. PhD candidates should manage their time, teach seminars, present their research, show intercultural sensitivity working in multinational teams, prepare themselves for a job after their PhD, maybe take care of an own family and much more.

In our new series "Primers for PreDocs" several speakers talk about these aspects in short lectures!  
A short reception after the talks will give you the opportunity to discuss with the speakers.
