September, 1st + 8th, 2021 Doctoral Supervision
The success of doing a doctorate depends not only on whether the doctoral candidates are suitable and sufficiently motivated for this research. Rather guidance and support by the supervisor(s) can often make the difference between success and failure. Some say, up to 50% of a successful doctorate are hidden in the relationship called supervision. In this workshop, you will discuss the criteria defining a good doctoral supervision and reflect upon optimal relationships between doctoral candidates and supervisors. Learn more
