philGRAD – The Graduate Academy of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities

The Graduate Academy philGRAD is a central institution of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. It supports the faculty's young academics during the doctoral phase with a diverse workshop programme in key qualifications as well as with needs-oriented advisory and coaching services. Individual career and personal development as well as networking among doctoral sresearchers are the main focus of philGRAD.  For example, the community of doctoral researchers at our faculty is involved in the doctoral researchers network philFAELTIG and the doctoral researcher representatives also offer regular get-togethers. philGRAD also promotes social interaction in faculty-wide events such as Heinrich – Der Slam, the fireside chat and finally, the annual doctoral party - organised together with the doctoral office - is an unforgettable highlight in the academic year and in the lives of our newly graduated students.

Together with the PhD Office, philGRAD is the central point of contact for your doctorate at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. While the PhD Office is your central point of contact for all formal matters concerning your – from the provisional acceptance as a doctoral candidate to the submission of your dissertation – philGRAD sees itself as your process companion during all phases of your extensive research project. We also want to provide you with the best possible support and counselling at all times in the event of doubts, lack of motivation, writer's block, conflicts and any other challenges.
