"How to doctorate" - Welcome Day Extra Event
Writing a dissertation: How does that actually work? Who pays me? And what if I want to go abroad? Especially at the beginning of a doctorate, many young researchers ask themselves such questions. And they also appear again and again in the further work process. How good if there are experts who can help.
To answer these questions, representatives of three institutions of the University of Bielefeld presented such support services in the BGHS on Wednesday, 10 April. Following the Welcome Day, at which the new BGHS PhD students were first welcomed, Swantje Lahm from the writing laboratory gave insights into the highs and lows of writing a dissertation, which not only concern the concrete formulation of texts, but also the complete development process in the doctoral phase. Annika Schmidtpeter from the Service Center for Young Scientists provided information about various scholarship providers and gave tips for applications. And Karin Kruse from the International Office presented funding opportunities for shorter and longer stays abroad during doctoral studies.
For the first time, this inter-institutional event took place in the BGHS. The great interest shown by the doctoral candidates, who took part, but above all the comprehensive, concrete and competent information from the various service facilities at the University of Bielefeld make it clear that it was an all-round success. And it wasn't the last time!
