Meet and Greets For Doctoral Students

The yearly "Afternoon for Doctorates" is always a special highlight after all the hard work that all of the students are investing in their doctoral and research work.

Since 2012, doctorates have the possibility to get to know each other more personally and get in contact with the university administration. Next to information concerning doctoral studies at TH Köln, the "Afternoon for Doctorates" provides a regular panel to express thoughts, criticism or desires with regard to the general process of a graduation.
