Upcoming Orientation Days

Participation in the Orientation Days (once) is mandatory for all HELENA graduate students

  • The event is especially designed for new graduate students, so a participation within the first year is recommended.
  • The program of day 1 will introduce you to the mission of the Helmholtz Zentrum München and its research programs as well as to core aspects of the Graduate School. An Interactive Introduction Round will give you time to get to know your fellow students. In the afternoon, there will be a tour to the famous Allianz Arena including snacks.
  • Days 2 and 3 will focus entirely on the training of key competences. When you register for the Orientation Days you can choose between different workshops in English.

These workshops cover the following topics:

  • "Effective presentation and communication for a successful graduate student project"
  • "Coping with the challenges of a graduate student project"
  • "Presenting your research competently in English"
  • "Self and time management workshop for graduate students"
