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, 2 May 2017 17:30 in the office of the Fachschaft Doktorat (Getreidemarkt 9).
