Join 3IN Doctoral Colloquium for peer support!

A Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which PhD students and candidates can meet on a regular basis in order to discuss their topics, methods, and all issues connected with their doctoral projects.

The aim of the 3IN Doctoral Colloquium is to provide a platform for a peer-to-peer network where PhD students of Social Sciences can support each other and tackle upcoming challenges and obstacles on the way towards their PhD together. Both the structure and content are based on the needs of the participants.

Doctoral Colloquium will meet on a regular basis, for example, once in a quarter or a semester with the following aims:

  • Ph.D. students to present their research topics and receive feedback.
  • Discussions on different topics, such as financial support, methods, time management, ethics, etc.
  • Ph.D. students can, for example, organize online writing workshops, in which the students agree to a certain time and date to meet virtually and to work and write on their own topics.

Why to join a 3IN Doctoral Colloquium?

Being a PhD student is a very challenging and, most of the time, a lonely task. With an international doctoral colloquium, you will receive feedback from peers, gain intercultural competence, extend your scientific network, and learn about research practices in other countries.

As a first step, all interested participants will have a first informal online meeting to get to know each other. In this meeting, participants talk about expectations and personal wishes and needs. Based on this, the participants can establish a plan for their personal 3IN Doctoral Colloquium.
