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

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.
