Qualification program

The course program is organized according to the terms, with a regular alternation between even and odd semesters. Participation in seminars, special lectures and lecture series, international workshops, as well as in methodology courses, is compulsory for all of the training group’s students, irrespective of the financial source. Yet, the RTG will host students with different backgrounds. Therefore the study program will adapt to the individual educational needs of the PhD students.
