Information for coordinators and directors of the doctoral level

The implementation of a sustainable culture of cooperative quality development and assurance at the doctoral level is a focal point of Graduate Campus activities. To this aim, the Graduate Campus has developed different measures and activities:

Network Doctoral Programs

The network is dedicated to questions concerning the development of the doctoral studies as well as the practical tasks of everyday business. It is open to all directors and coordinators of doctoral programs and interested supervisors at UZH. The network meets twice a year in order to discuss and exchange on good practice.

Network of Conflict Mediators

The UZH has many contact points for doctoral students who experience problems or conflicts during their doctorate. The network is intended to facilitate the exchange of experience and good practice and to strengthen the activities and competencies of the conflict mediators. In addition, the existing knowledge gained from experience is to be made available for quality assurance purposes.

Quality Development and Assurance

The Graduate Campus provides funding for decentralized measures for quality assurance and development at the doctoral level that coordinators and directors of UZH doctoral programs or graduate schools can apply for.

UZH Interfaces

The Graduate Campus ensures a close connection to the UZH Central Services through a single contact point for those responsible for programs in the sense of a one-stop-shop; university-wide issues can be dealt with centrally and contacts made to relevant offices.

Public Outreach

The Graduate Campus website creates a unison appearance for the different doctoral programs and studies at UZH, thus making the multitude of possibilities and overall quality of the individual components more visible.
