Support of Graduates
The University of Wuppertal promotes the qualification of young scientists in all career stages. The Center for Graduate Studies (CGS) is the main point of call for PhD students and students interested in PhD research from all schools regarding questions relating to PhD funding and organisation. In addition, it supports networking and research activities of PhD students. The Research department team offers advice on national, European and other international programmes relating to post-doctoral research funding.
A further and continuing education programme and a careers service supports successful career paths from PhD to becoming a professor or towards work outside the university. To ensure equal opportunities and diversity, academic staff development at the University of Wuppertal also involves targeted funding programmes and incentives for promoting young female talent.
