Welcome to the web site of the Fachschaft Doktorat. We are the representation of interests of doctoral candidates at TU Wien. We act in self-governing bodies at the university. We support and advise you in your matters of studies and research. Aside from this we offer workshops and a social programme. We are very pleased about your feedback and suggestions—especially from people who go the whole hog and want to reinforce our team or introduce their issues and positions in one of our jour fixe meetings.
The next office hour is on Tuesday, 8 January 2019 17:30 in the office of the Fachschaft Doktorat (Getreidemarkt 9).
There is currently no jour fixe planned.

FSDR Stammtisch: BBQ at the Danube2018-07-18

During the summer months we'd like to offer you something special: FSDR reserved a BBQ-place close to the Danube Island! Bring your own drinks and food and meet some fellow PhD students at this relaxing place. And don't forget your swimming clothes!
In case of unfavorable weather we booked an alternative date. Further information will be announced at Facebook and on our homepage.
