Professional & scientific qualification as a success factor

In addition to the professional qualification of all our students and doctoral candidates, it is our declared goal to equip them with the relevant competencies for the (inter)national job and knowledge market. This applies not only in view of the strategic location of Trier University of Applied Sciences at the border triangle of Germany - France - Luxembourg. Here, but also beyond, cross-border intercultural experiences and competences are particularly important for (inter)national employers. Thus, in recent years, the demand for the university's own offers of career orientation and career entry has grown both in the national and international context. This also applies to young researchers, who face particular challenges at the interface between studies and entry into an academic career, and who mostly operate in international research contexts.

Trier University of Applied Sciences focuses precisely on these transitions of German and international students and doctoral candidates into the (inter)national labor and knowledge market. For this purpose, an International Career Service is being set up with various target group-specific advisory, networking and workshop services.

Due to the lack of the right to award doctorates at ­universities in Rhineland-Palatinate and the associated obligation to award cooperative doctorates for candidates, there is an additional need for information and support here. Trier University of Applied Sciences offers support for international cooperative doctorates in the administrative handling of ­admission and enrollment procedures at the two chosen institutions. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact the responsible project staff member, Ms. Hannah Sauer.
