After the in-person workshop, other web seminars will be help to support candidates and participants in their journeys to finding research options in Germany. Be part of this great opportunty.


The resource persons were very knowledgeable about their topics and made the program very interactive which to me, was very good. Additionally, the workshop sessions exposed certain weaknesses inherent in our write-ups(PhD concept notes) when they were subjected to scrutiny by the resource persons. This has contributed immensely to the quality of my applications and correspondence between me and my would-be supervisors. I now have a fair idea about what is expected of a doctoral candidate in Germany.  I recommend this workshop to anyone who has an interest in pursuing his/her PhD in Germany.
