To all women in the digital environment

Work of the Graduate Centre in times of the coronavirus pandemic

Together for the region and beyond: The University of Vechta takes responsibility and makes its contribution to containing the coronavirus. In order to comply with hygiene regulations and minimum distances, we work both in home office and on campus in accordance with the current situation.

Due to the transition period, the Graduate Centre currently cannot offer any personal consultations. You can reach us preferably via email or phone. We will take care of your enquiry as quickly as possible and are also happy to offer you consultation appointments via phone or web conference. We empty our post office box on campus at least once a week during restricted regular service so that documents received can be processed.

Thank you for your understanding!
