On 30 June 2021 the second (virtual) Graduate Day of the University of Erfurt took place. Around 50 persons participated. Presentations and posters could be viewed from 28 June in preparation for the day (the documents are available until 11 July 2021 under the item “Vorbereitung” on the German website). First of all, participants at the Graduate Day had the opportunity to take part in a workshop on the topic "Doctorate - Is it for me? - Tips for decision-making". After that the Vice President for Resarch and Graduate Services, Prof. Dr. Benedikt Kranemann, welcomed the participants. Then everybody had the opportunity to ask questions to the staff of the Research and Graduate Services about the procedure of a doctorate, funding opportunities, support services at the University of Erfurt and other topics relevant for doing a doctorate. In the afternoon, the participants were able to enter into a dialogue with the jGraduate Centres and the Max Weber Kolleg: for half an hour each, speakers, doctoral students and other members of the Graduate Centers and the Max Weber Kolleg were available to answer questions. At the end of the day, an online get-together with the doctoral representation took place.
