Vice-President Prof. Paulsen and the head of the Graduate Centre Dr. Herberger welcomed the new doctoral candidates and explained the doctoral process at the FAU. As our speaker, Robert presented our work as elected Doctoral Candidates’ Representatives at the FAU. We wish all new doctoral candidates a wonderful and productive time at the FAU and if any questions come up, feel free to contact us at any time!

And don’t forget our Get Togeheter at Kanapee (Neue Straße 50, 91054 Erlangen) next week at Thursday the 7th of December, from 19:00 on.

Too Few Seminars for Graduate Students

Probably you have also experienced that the program of seminars offered by our Graduate Centre was already fully booked after the first couple of minutes. On the one hand this implies that the courses are very popular and useful, but on the other hand there are obviously too few of them. Therefore, we are currently trying to increase the number of courses. We hope that our university is willing to invest more in the education of their graduate students.
