Help in difficult situations
Problems concerning your doctorate
If you need help to resolve a conflict, there are different approaches depending on the situation:
1. Help from the GC LS
If the conflict is based on pure facts, e.g. in the doctoral process, we are happy to help clarify this and clear up misunderstandings.
Contact GC LS
If the conflict is more personal and you need to find a way to talk to each other in a goal-oriented and sensible way, coaching can help you. Together with a coach, you can analyze the problem and find different approaches to conduct the conversation independently.
Individual coaching offer from TUM

All doctoral candidate at the GC LS elect the doctoral representatives. They are members of the Graduate Council at TUM and represented the members of GC LS. Additionally they have the right to hospitality in the School Council of the TUM School of Life Sciences.
