Completing a doctorate and successfully starting a career – both in science and industry – requires competences beyond scientific and methodical knowledge. Together with its partners*, KHYS offers you therefore a large variety of quality-assured courses in which you can obtain such crucial professional skills. Our program covers trainings for competences in the areas of research and communication, management, doing a doctorate and career planning as well as languages.
For young scientists, who have registered with KHYS, KHYS covers the entire costs of participation or major parts of it. In some instances, a small fee of up to €50 will have to be paid by participants for the courses.
