Below is a list of some possible training measures for doctoral students in the BGTS.
Research oriented courses and seminars take place within the framework of the participating programs, faculties and institutions.
A selection of these activities can be found here.
The BGTS comprises the doctoral training of three disciplines and attaches importance on interdisciplinary collaboration.
As a joint interdisciplinary event for all BGTS members the BGTS colloquium takes place once per semester.
The BGTS supports international exchange of young researchers. Once a year Mobility Grants are awarded to doctoral students planning a research stay abroad.
The participation in international conferences and summer schools is a good opportunity to establish contacts with researchers from all over the world, but also to present own research.
There are many opportunities to gain useful qualifications beside the subject-specific training. Examples are teaching or the organization of scientific events.
In addition, Bielefeld University's Personnel development program offers a wide range of transferable skills courses. These are open to doctoral students of Bielefeld University.
At the end of their doctoral studies students can obtain a certificate listing all activities completed in addition to the thesis work. Please inform the BGTS office at an early stage, if you would like to have a certificate.
