Writing in English is extremely important for many students in the doctoral phase. If you would like to join an English-speaking writing group of regularly meeting (mostly) PhD-students who discuss their English-language dissertations, conference presentations and other projects and topics, have a look here.
It is also worth looking into the courses that are available in the workshop programme organised by the Career Service. There are always excellent courses on offer, primarily for doctoral students seeking to clarify their goals. On request, Dörte Husmann, from the Career Service of Bielefeld University has frequently initiated doctoral coaching groups. If you would also like to start your own coaching group, then you are welcome to contact her.
In the staff development programme of Bielefeld University you can also find a broad range of courses on offer for researchers who are in the phase of qualifying for a professorship, and who have to combine research, teaching and everyday life and plan their future.
You can find comprehensive information for doctoral students and recently qualified doctors of Bielefeld University here..
The brochure "Mut zur Promotion" Courage to take up a doctoral degree of the Rektorat of Bielefeld University is particularly aimed at women who are contemplating embarking on a doctoral degree.
