What our students say*

  • “If you have the opportunity to take part in this course – do it. It will fundamentally change your view on how your work as a research scientist can make a difference in the real world outside your lab” (Konstantin Kuhne)
  • “My expectations to the course were very high, and they were fulfilled” (Sandra Heckers)
  • “It was a difficult decision to leave the lab for 5 days but it absolutely worth it”(Kevin Ferreira)
  • “This course taught me things I didn’t know would even exist. The course inspired me that the PhD is more than just gaining scientific knowledge, but also to use the time to work on my personality” (Inga Hensel)
