German - Structured

Course overview
Students also have the opportunity to develop their practical skills, for example, by participating in the regularly staged German plays, classes on rhetoric and presentation skills and in particular by teaching undergraduate courses.

As part of the doctoral training available on the Structured PhD programme, students avail themselves of a range of interdisciplinary taught modules. The wide menu of available options include modules that:

- are Discipline-Specific in that they augment the student’s existing knowledge in their specialist area,

- are Dissertation-Specific in that they supply core skills which are essential to completion of the research project e.g. additional language skills

- acknowledge a student’s professional development e.g. presentation of a paper at an International Conference

- enhance a student’s employability through generic training e.g. Careers Workshops, Computer literacy.
