Welcome to the WWU Graduate Centre!

The WWU Graduate Centre is a central institution for PhDs and postdocs at the University of Münster. This website offers an overview of our commitments: advisory services, workshops and comprehensive tips regarding academic qualification. We advise you on PhD opportunities and provide you with cross-disciplinary assistance during your doctoral studies (self and project management, academic writing and presenting). Moreover, our services extend to the planning of a future academic or non-academic career.

The WWU Graduate Centre keeps its doors open not only for young academics but also researchers who supervise young academics, as well as those who wish to initiate new programmes for young researchers.

Not only online...

You are interested in our advisory services or have registered for one of our workshops? You can find us at the so-called "northern Kavaliershäuschen" - it is one of the two buildings in front of the Schloss (Castle) right at the promenade.

The offices, where the advisory services take place, are upstairs (R102-104), as well as the small seminar room (R101). Most of the seminars and workshops take place in the big seminar room on the ground floor (R001). 

We are looking forward to greeting you in the Graduate Centre!
