Transferable skills

In addition to the scientific curriculum, we want students to improve their communication skills, which is an important part of preparing them for science as a competitive profession.

  • We organize workshops in scientific writing and scientific presentation, as well as writing fellowship applications. Additional workshops, on topics such as optimizing communication, team and leadership skills, project management, intercultural and gender awareness, and applying for jobs, are offered as electives.
  • To facilitate integration into life in Germany, foreign students take a one-month compact German language course prior to starting QBM, followed by weekly courses at voluntary basis. Conversely, students with modest English skills take a compact English course in order to ensure successful participation in the educational and research program of the school.
