Culture PhDinner

At the Graduate School for Forest and Agricultural Sciences (GFA), you can find more than 50 nationalities. In order to get to know each other a little better or to learn something about other cultures, we are happy to announce Culture PhDinners, which are financially supported by the STIBET programme. You want to introduce your country and excite others with local food, movies or music? You want to get to know other PhD students from your or other countries? Then you have come to the right place! Contacts with students from other nationalities will help you to feel home here, to find your way around better and to make valuable contacts for the future.
