FIGSS Soft Skill Program

The Soft Skill Program of the Frankfurt International Graduate School for Science offers our doctoral students courses on various topics that complement the scientific education at FIAS. The courses offered are based on three integrated courses and several supplementary workshops. 

The integrated courses teach a wide range of skills, each adapted to the current situation in the doctorate. 

In addition to the integrated offer, there are special offers, adapted to the needs of FIGSS doctoral students, on an irregular basis.

The language of the courses is English.

The first course deals with the dynamics and the personal impact in groups.


Course 2 - Leadership

The second course deals with leadership styles, project management and presentation techniques.


Course 3 - Career development

The final course in the series deals with the career development after the PhD.
