At the beginning of the academic year, we organise information days for all incoming PhD candidates. During this event, we introduce the BTS institutions (Freie Universität, Hertie School, and WZB), organise guided library tours, and have fun get-togethers in the evenings. There will be plenty of time to socialise and learn more about the programme. We will inform you about the dates of the event well in advance.
In addition, in October or November an official inauguration ceremony will be held and the student representatives will organise an All Student Meeting where you will meet your fellow PhD students from the other cohorts and be informed about important student matters.
