Graduate Council

At TUM Graduate School (TUM-GS), we value the opinions of our doctoral candidates and give them a mouthpiece to communicate them publicly. Each Graduate Center chooses two representatives to serve on the Graduate Council, which meets regularly to discuss all of the issues relating to doctoral studies.

Do you want to make a difference at your university? Join the Graduate Council and become informed about the discussions taking place in Germany and Europe surrounding doctoral programs. The Graduate Council ensures that doctoral candidates’ interests are represented on the Graduate Council and beyond, and that they can take part in shaping the program. Please ask your respective departmental Graduate Center or your thematic Graduate Center about contact partners and election periods.

If you have questions or would like to get involved in the Graduate Council, feel free to contact the speakers at
