Between 30 and 50 % of all PhD students in Germany do not finish their doctoral theses. There are many reasons for that, but most of them can be eliminated: if you have done a master’s or similar degree with good results you will be able to finish a PhD too.

In this workshop you will learn how to focus as early as possible on finishing your PhD. The workshop covers the following topics:

  • How to define and set goals, do time planning and time management
  • How to deal with different requirements at the same time: research, publishing, guiding MA-students etc.
  • How to motivate yourself and how to deal with demotivation
  • Your next goals after finishing your PhD
  • How to structure the work and the writing process
  • How to deal with writer’s bloc
  • How to work with your supervisor
  • Science myths demystified
  • If it all does not work: looking for advice
