RUB Research School in a Nutshell

If you have never heard of RUB Research School, here is what you need to know:

There are four branches that make up the Research School experience

  1. Training Beyond your Discipline
    You most likely know a lot, but there always is room for improvement. This is exactly what RUB Research School helps you to do: more than research. The Research School certificate for example documents all the workshop activities you took part in.
  2. Interdisciplinary Doctoral Community
    If you have not noticed yet: interdisciplinarity can be an enriching experience, both personally and professionally. For such interdisciplinary exchange to happen we organise events like the yearly Science College or Reserarch Day.
  3. Guidance and Counseling
    At some point in the pursuit of your doctorate you may hit a wall, financially or perhaps motivationally. Regardless, we give advice on planning a doctorate, acquiring funds or simply give you personal advice.
  4. Internationality
    We are international and not just our students: We support international research, foster global cooperation, and train you to apply for and review grants.

No matter who or where you are in your project, we can help you on your way.
Our programmes will help you do more than research. Regardless of whether you are:

  •     planning a doctorate
  •     starting off as a new doctoral researcher
  •     coming to RUB as an international applicant
  •     want to connect professionally as an Alumnus
  •     or go to the next level as a postdoc

We offer non-research-related advice, personal orientation and help you find funding opportunities. Together we go beyond research.
