PhD education and training

Education and training for PhD candidates of the Graduate School of Life Sciences is provided by the PhD Course Centre and the disciplinary PhD Programmes.

Until now, updates about news, courses and events organized or promoted by the PhD Course Centre reached you via your programme coordinator. This is going to change. In the future these updates will be communicated regularly. Do you want to stay updated about the courses offered by the PhD Course Centre?
