Welcome at Leuphana Graduate School

We warmly invite you to the Masters Kick-off 2021!

The Team of the Graduate School welcomes you to the Digital Masters Kick-off of your Master's studies at Leuphana from 4th to 6th October.

Which 21st century skills need graduate students to shape the future world?

The last two years have shown that we are in a world that is constantly changing. Central to this is the term VUCA - volatility, uncertanty, complexity and ambiguity. More than ever, we need astute and critical people like you to face the post-pandemic problems and find creative solutions. Together with you, we would like to gaze into the future and ask ourselves the question: What skills do you need as graduate students to actively shape the future society, cultural landscape, economy and environment?

Programme Overview

Here you can find the preliminary programme. In view of the constantly changing pandemic situation, we reserve the right to make changes.

We offer writing consultations and workshops in German and English and provide valuable writing resources in both languages. Students can make use of the services we offer at every stage of their writing process, e.g. through individual consultations, our Writing Lab, the Time to Write, or our (online) writing resources.

Writing Center's premises are situated in Building 5 on Campus.
