The FAU Graduate School offers information events and workshops in key skills, in addition to existing courses in the faculties or interdisciplinary programmes. These are available for all registered doctoral candidates and postdocs of FAU and will both provide skills for the successful completion of the doctorate as well as skills for the scientific career and the labour market, improving the career opportunities for doctoral candidates in and outside the university.
