Doctoral life is all about self-motivation and managing your time. The keys to completing the dissertation promptly are organization and self management. But personalities and dissertation projects are different – therefore we will focus on the development of individual strategies that fit your project and your way of handling time.

set obtainable goals and describe accomplishable tasks
plan the next months of their thesis and research work methodically.
We will focus on practicing various approaches and methods – this means, that as a participant you should be up to discuss your ideas with others and to receive and provide feedback.
