The Graduate School's Introduction Days aim to:|
-introduce students to the education offered by the Graduate School of Natural Sciences and the student's degree programme. Students will get an overview of courses and interdisciplinary options.
-give students an introduction to scientific integrity which will be further explored during the course of the academic year
-give students the opportunity to listen to key-note speakers from the academia as well as from the labour market
-give students the possibility to think ahead about their future by offering them appropriate workshops and an information market
-give students a warm welcome by starting a community from the first day of their arrival
There are two morning sessions with several speakers introducing the student to the the education system of the graduate school, its rules, its curricula, general and practical information about personnel and administration, specific information about the programme itself and expectations of the programme board about their students, honours education, specific profiles across disciplines and the profession of teacher. |
Knowing what kind of skills and attitudes the labour market is looking for is considered as important. Workshops will train students to enhance awareness about their own strengths and weaknesses or introduce them to the work and life of PhD students.
Students will have ample time to get to known each other and their programme board.
Lunches, drinks and a concluding dinner will be organised.
