"I took a course with Bärbel that I really enjoyed. With each module that I worked on I learned how to manage this big PhD project a bit better. Without this input, I would have been lost in all my tasks and duties."

Since you might be curious …

… I did my own PhD at Roskilde University in Denmark and greatly enjoyed my research! But I realised that many of my fellow PhD candidates struggled and completed much later than originally planned. When I started my academic career, I also started teaching PhD students and it became my passion to show them what they could do to complete their PhD projects successfully. Since then, I taught thousands of PhD students from all around the world. 

You can learn how to be successful with your PhD! Every PhD student can pick up the skills necessary to deal with their problems and increase the chances of timely and successful completion! 

If you want a head-start, join now. Towards the end of the Webinar, I'll tell you how I can help you further with my current programme for PhD students, PhD Success Lab.
