|Program Description:||Apart from the more classic formats of doctoral education, the qualification concept of the HPSL puts special emphasis on the strong involvement of PhD students (as well as postdocs) in the structuring of the forms of teaching and learning. Overall, a study program is favored which – in the sense of the motto “professionally structured, but not like in school” – allows for a widening of the disciplinary horizon beyond the necessarily limited scope of each individual project. The program depends on the input from both the mentors and the students and has to be kept as flexible as possible in order to support the efficient completion of the PhD.
By means of the school’s guest researcher program, students can integrate themselves in international networks. An integral element for this purpose are workshops. Here, students work together with a senior researcher they have invited in a relaxed and at the same time concentrated atmosphere in small groups of 5-10 people.
Beyond the disciplinary and methodical education, the school provides the students with comprehensive advanced training offers.
