Extra Curricular Training Courses

The doctoral students at TUM will benefit from a large offer of extra curricular (transferable skills) training at the TUM Graduate School (TUM GS). Doctoral students will be able to choose from roughly 200 transferable skills courses that the TUM GS organizes in close collaboration with Carl von Linde-Akademie, TUM Gender Office, and Unternehmer-TUM GmbH. Up to three such courses are free of charge for doctoral students at TUM. The doctoral students at the UniBw will choose from similar seminars and training provided by the Zentralinstitut StudiumPlus of UniBw.

Graz is an internationally renowned center for studying German as a foreign language. The Treffpunkt Sprachen center for foreign languages offers German courses from beginners to advanced levels at reduced rates for students in international exchange and cooperation programs like the IGDK. Together with the existing doctoral college Discrete Mathematics at TUG and KFU a course on scientific communication will be offered where students receive a highly professional training in scientific presentation and communication techniques. Apart from this, the universities in Graz offer a wide choice of courses on general cultural and scientific subjects and sportive activities, which are open for Graz based and also for visiting students in the IGDK.
