Thesis Defense Training


During their thesis defense, doctoral researchers have to give a presentation of 10 to 30 minutes which is followed by a discussion. This workshop is designed to optimally prepare doctoral researchers for this situation.

With practical tips and exercises, the participants learn how to structure their introductory presentation, how to build up the central argument, how to deal with critical questions and how to handle nervousness. Participants also get the chance to practice their presentation and to get feedback from the group and the trainer.

Note for participants: Two weeks before the workshop participants can decide whether they would like to practice their presentation during the workshop. Participants who do not wish to hold their full presentation get the chance to hold a short 3-minute presentation, which they can prepare during the workshop.


You can register for the event one month before the event starts from 9am.
