GradTUBS is the graduate academy of Technische Universität Braunschweig. All of the university's PhD students are eligible for participation. Also external PhD students who have their supervisor at Technische Universität Braunschweig are welcome at GradTUBS.
The graduate academy does not have a special registration form. Please subscribe to our mailing list, which will keep you updated on the current programme. In order to sign up for workshops and other events at GradTUBS you will need to register additionally via Stud.IP.
To access Stud.IP, you need a user ID (i.e. a so-called "y-number" or an "i-number"). PhD students who are enrolled at Technische Universität Braunschweig automatically receive this number with their student ID. In case you have not yet received your user ID, please contact Gauß-IT-Zentrum. Your user ID is the same you use for accessing your emails at Technische Universität Braunschweig.
External PhD students need to send an e-mail requesting activation for Stud.IP, stating your name, your supervisor's name, his or her institution and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending such an email, please cc your supervisor. Your account is valid for six months and can be renewed upon request.
Once you have registered on Stud.IP, please associate yourself to your institute and to "GradTUBS" as a study subject (under Profile>Personal Details>Study Details). In order to receive email notifications from Stud.IP for news and changes concerning your courses, please change your message settings accordingly (under Settings>Messages>"Send a copy of all received messages to your e-mail address").
GradTUBS events can only reliably take place with your help. Therefore, we kindly ask you to cancel your participation in good time via Stud.IP if you are not able to attend a course you have registered for. In the sense of collegiality, this will enable other PhD students to take up the course offer. Cancellation is permissible via Stud.IP up to one week before the start of the course. If you are not able to take part in an event on short notice, please contact the GradTUBS team immediately via email. Please take note that you will be excluded from participation in GradTUBS events for the course of the running semester if you fail to adequately cancel your participation ahead of a workshop.
Each faculty / department, respectively, determines which courses are credited with how many Credit Points (ECTS) as an obligatory component of your doctoral process. For information on the accreditation of GradTUBS workshops, please check the information available under "regulations".
In compliance with service agreement 39 at Technische Universität Braunschweig (Dienstvereinbarung 39), the council of the graduate academy recommends that PhD students are released from work in order to participate in GradTUBS courses. However, this recommendation is not legally binding. Therefore, please refer to your supervisor for an individual agreement.
You will receive a certificate of attendance for every workshop or other event that you participate in at GradTUBS. You will need these certificates to submit them as proof for fulfilling the obligatory qualification part of your doctoral process.
In addition to the regular workshop programme, GradTUBS supports PhD students in planning and developing their career inside and outside of the university by connecting them to regional and transregional employers and research institutes. Early-stage researchers obtain competences and qualifications to promote their career in research and beyond while learning the interdisciplinary basics of methods and content in career development. On the other hand, companies receive the opportunity to get insights into the state-of-the-art of research while reinforcing their appeal to highly qualified junior researchers in the region and building their network within the university.
