Not all courses are open to all doctoral candidates at TU Berlin. Please check carefully to see which are available for you.

The broadest variety of workshops and courses is offered by the Center for Scientific Continuing Education and Cooperation. You will find up to a hundred courses per year, which are free for all scientific employees and registered doctoral candidates of TU Berlin, and possibly all doctoral candidates of the Berlin University Alliance.

The courses offered by the Staff Development and Continuing Education branch of the human ressources department are open to all employees of TU Berlin. START is a program for the next generation of management offering intensive seminars for postdocs and for those commencing a new managerial career in the areas of science and administration.

The Centre for Entrepreneurship has a number of individual offers for doctoral candidates who are interested in marketing a product or setting up their own business.

As a doctoral candidate at TU Berlin you can also, as part of an initiative of the Berlin University Alliance, take advantage of courses offered by the Dahlem Research School (at Freie Universität) and the Humboldt Graduate School (Humboldt Universität) – please follow the links provided and contact the relevant institute about participating in a program:
