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.
Events offered by or via the Graduate Centre
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.

Events offered by the university's faculties
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.
