Courses & events

yDiv seeks to qualify its doctoral researchers with an excellent training programme and also creates opportunities for integration and networking. yDiv members get to know other PhDs, postdocs, and many other iDiv colleagues at PhD retreats, summer schools, BBQs, and many more.

yDiv courses
