University of Würzburg Graduate Schools - Graduate School of Life Sciences



    The week’s activities begin on Monday with a welcome by our dean followed by a webinar on  "Good Scientific Practice" – detailing the conduct expected from every scientist at our university. This is a mandatory course and must be attended before you can graduate, so this is a good opportunity to aleady fulfill this requirement!

    In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to network and to get to know your peers during a "Speed Networking".

    To get to know the GSLS better, we will continue with an introduction to the GSLS covering the following topics: 

    • The different phases of a PhD: what to expect, challenges and opportunities
    • Your benefit from a structured training  programme
    • Introduction to the Doctoral Researchers Council (DRC) and the Doctoral Researchers’ Symposium

    In addition to this, we offer a city tour of Würzburg to give you an insight into the history and culture of the city you are living in.


    On Tuesday, 9:00am - approx. 4:00pm we will be offering a range of one-day workshops which count towards the requirements of the structured programme.
