The Postgraduate Programme of the German Development Institute starts every year at the 1st of September and covers a period of nine months.
The first eleven weeks of the Postgraduate Programme take place in Bonn. The seminar topics range from specific development issues and global challenges up to methodological workshops for professional writing and improving your communicative and soft skills. The Institute relies on classical teaching and self-study but also group working and simulation games.
The main focus of the training is an empirical and counselling-orientated research project in a developing or emerging country within a country working group. The projects are prepared and organised in three teams under the instruction and direction of scientists from the German Development Institute.
