DRS News

On our German website, we irregularly publish news that we receive from the DRS. As far as possible, there is an English version or short description in English available.

What is the DRS

The Dahlem Research School (DRS) is the strategic center for junior researchers within the framework of the institutional development strategy of Freie Universität Berlin.

The DRS develops new strategies and implements measures to assure and improve the quality of graduate education. Its goal is to support academic and non-academic careers alike. To this end, the DRS offers information and advice as well as a comprehensive workshop program for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. Special consideration is given to the needs of international candidates.

You are entitled to two courses per year. If you have used up your budget, you would get the message "You're not allowed to book this course due to personal limit" from the booking system. Please write an e-mail to nina.fabjancic@fu-berlin.de beforehand, as in most cases it will be possible to extend the budget upon your request.

Course Cancellations:
