In October 2021 we will continue with our event series “The German University Landscape” with Dr. Uwe Genetzke from the International Office.

Almost all of us have reached our limits when trying to understand the German University System. Therefore, with our new series of small events, we would like to give you an overview of the structures at German universities, legal regulations for scientists, career perspectives, funding and financial management.

We will continue our event series with a talk by Dr. Uwe Genetzke, head of the International Office of OVGU. In an interactive talk, he will give us an overview about the activities of the international office and the benefits for PhD/MD students and Postdocs.

  • scholarships
  • travel grants

The event is free of charge, registration is required. The event will take place either virtually or on the medical campus in presence, according to the corona regulation.
