Stay Abroad Workshop for PhD students

flight overview

A PhD degree programme at the Graduate School of Science and Technology includes participating in active research environments, including stays at other, mainly foreign, research institutions.

Going abroad gives you the opportunity to make international contacts and gain new perspectives on your research. Furthermore, it can be a big experience and evolve you on a personal level.

When planning a stay abroad, there are several matters, which are important to be acquainted with in order to get on top of the practicalities.

To help facilitate the planning process,  PHAUST (the PhD Association at Aarhus University, Science and Technology) invites you to this inspirational workshop, which includes guests from GSST, two PhD students and an experienced supervisor. Participants will get tips and tricks on going abroad and there will also be time to ask questions. The workshop is held in English.

When and where
22 August 2018 from 9.00-12.00.
Fredrik Nielsens Vej 2-4, 8000 Aarhus C in Preben Hornungstuen
