OLTECH Mid-term Workshop

Mid-term Workshop

With the Mid-term Workshop for doctoral students in the final phase or at mid-term of their PhD, we would like to provide information on various topics and questions and talk to doctoral candidates and responsible persons from different organisational units (supervisors, doctoral committees, personnel department, library, etc.).

The content will cover various aspects of the final phase of the doctorate, the submission of the dissertation and the disputation. With this workshop, we would like to create an offer that takes up and answers questions on the following topics:

  • Timetable/time management for the final phase - tips and suggestions
  • Self-motivation
  • Contract situation in the final phase/contract extensions; experiences and legal basis
  • Important deadlines for the final phase
  • Assessment/review of doctoral theses, tips for the defence
  • Publication and dissemination of the dissertation
