Getting Started for new PhD students & Postdocs


We would like to give scientists who are new to OVGU a little start-up help and regularly offer an open information and discussion round on ZOOM. After an overview of the structure and basic tasks, and a little insight into the not so obvious responsibilities, there will be plenty of time to answer individual questions. We cordially invite you to get to know OVGU in general and the Graduate Academy's services in particular, so that your start will be as smooth as possible. We speak English and German.

Techniker_Krankenkasse_2016_logoHow are you?

With your move to Germany, many new things come your way, raising many questions.

Since we know from experience that the German social security system can be quite overwhelming. So we want to offer you support here.

We will advise you in an informative webinar (approx. 60 minutes) what you should know about the German social security system.

For example, you will get important information, such as

• What is the Social insurance system in Germany and what do I have to pay?

• What can I actually do with my health insurance card in Germany and what is covered?

• How do I find a doctor in Germany? And how TK supports me, for example, in making appointments.

When: April 9, 2024 and May 7, 2024, each from 2pm to 3pm.
