The courses of the Doctoral School in Environmental, Food and Biological Sciences are directed to all doctoral candidates within the school. The aim is to help doctoral candidates to earn the skills necessary for professional researchers, as well as experts in other scientific positions. Discipline-specific courses are offered by the doctoral programmes within the school. The majority of the courses are in English.

Attending a course normally requires pre-registration. After closing the course registration applicants will receive a notification about participation in the course. If the number of course applicants exceeds the number of available seats, the selection of attendees is based on:

  • status and affiliation of applicants (1st priority: doctoral candidates within the YEB Doctoral School)
  • motivation and need for participating in the course (stated in the course application form)
  • order of submitting the registration form

Please note:  *no-show*means that registered participants do not inform the organizers in time if they decide to skip the course/event they have signed up for, despite of the fact that cancellation of participation is typically very simple and requires only an e-mail to the organizers. Such behaviour is a huge waste of all resources, thus the YEB Board decided on September 14 2016 that if a doctoral candidate has *no-shows* it may have influence to get  travel grants in the next application round.
