Magdeburg International PhD Students (MIPS)
The Network for International PhD Students at OVGU
MIPS was founded as an initiative "by doctoral students for doctoral students" in December 2006 on behalf of the International Office of the OVGU. All doctoral students and postdocs from Germany and abroad can participate.
MIPS helps to establish and improve contacts between international doctoral students. We support the social and academic integration of young academics. The network thus promotes the exchange of experiences on a scientific and personal level.
MIPS organises varied activities; joint excursions and cultural or sporting events. Since 2019, MIPS has also been supporting the self-organisation and initiative of doctoral students and now offers funding for independent excursions and company visits.
