University of Cologne – measures & activities

The Female Career Program (FCP) offers the opportunity of systematically enhancing the professional and personal profiles by attending seminars and workshops. In these courses, external trainers convey valuable specialized and insider information relevant to first degree and PhD programs and/or various professions. The objective is to make participants more aware of own abilities and to assist them in better presenting these while also showing them how to employ these to advantage in various professional fields. Course fees can be supported by the SFB 829.
