Qualification Programme

There are many requirements for an academic career: scientific quality of research work, data documentation and analysis, presentation techniques, involvement in teaching, project and time management and many more. In addition, you should prepare for a postdoctoral or your career after your doctoral studies. Do you want to stay in academia or pursue a non-university career?

The University of Bayreuth and the Junior Scholar Office (WiN-UBT) offers a broad information and qualification program within the WiN Academy / UBTGS, which is specifically tailored to the needs of young scholars. The WiN program is composed of the offerings of the institutions at the University of Bayreuth: the UBT Graduate School, the Center for Teaching and Learning (ZHL), the Writing Center, the Career Service, the Start-Up Counseling, the Equal Opportunities Department, the Office of Research Support, the Language Center and the Welcome Center. This consists of individual events as well as the possibility to acquire certificates.
