Doctoral candidates and early-stage researchers face a wide variety of professions and career paths open to them. Launching a career and attaining long-term success in these professional fields often demands a wide range of competencies. The Graduate Centre offers training programmes that specifically cater to the needs of early career researchers.
While our information events address cross-disciplinary aspects relevant to early-stage researchers' qualification, our workshops (organized by the Centre for Careers and Competencies) aim at supporting and expanding the skills involved in conducting research.

The foundation of any scientific work at the University of Passau is compliance with the recognised principles of science such as being honest, working lege artis as well as documenting and constantly questioning all results. Scientific misconduct harms the person concerned, the university and science in general. In order to increase awareness of the basic rules and to strengthen the researchers' trust in one another, the Graduate Centre offers an e-learning course free of charge entitled "Good academic practice".
Please contact us if you would like to participate in the e-learning course. You will receive log-in data and further information that will allow you to take part in the e-learning course anytime from your computer.

The faculties pool our researchers' expertise. Although the university does not offer a comprehensive doctoral curriculum, the faculties offer a variety of lectures and seminars that help doctoral researchers deepen their disciplinary knowledge. Each semester, these events are carefully selected to meet doctoral researchers' needs.

- develop a realistic plan for their thesis project
- are familiar with planning methods and can use appropriate methods when needed.
Working toward a doctoral degree is challenging, as doctoral candidates are required to meet several personal or professional demands: they have to plan and master deadlines, solve problems, communicate with colleagues and supervisors and find a balance between work and private life - and they might feel overwhelmed by work.
No matter what stage of their research project they are in, it is possible to counteract: with the use of efficient methods and strategies participants can plan and design the work on their thesis and be able to finish it within a realistic time frame.
The workshop covers the following topics:
• Basic methods for realistic planning - as basis for success
• Methods for the different stages and tasks of a thesis - and for other tasks, that doctoral students individually have to master
• Milestone plan for the thesis - and detailed planning of the next 6 months
• Setting priorities and other standard time management methods
• Self-motivation by goal setting: what comes next - and how can I use that for motivation or volition?
• How to deal with challenges caused by remote work
Participants learn how to develop and install the time- and self-management methods they need to work on their PhD.
They acquire a set of methods and strategies for solving current and future time-management challenges.
