Current Courses

Within the Saxon Doctoral Program at least four research methods courses are offered each year, which are held by internationally renowned scientists. These courses will take place alternately at four locations (Chemnitz, Dresden, Freiberg, Leipzig). Additionally, we offer short workshops that can also be attended by doctoral students and postdocs of partner institutions.
