Events and Study Trips

Every now and then the PSB organizes study trips for PhD students. For financial reasons, we cannot guarantee to provide trips in a costless way, but we hardly try to keep costs as low as possible.

IPK´s club provide an opportunity for social events, like barbecues and parties, public viewings, etc. Every Friday evening you can enjoy a movie night with actual movies in English on a big screen. You can play on football table, darts and many table-top games or you could enjoy cooking together with friends in the big kitchen. Also, meetings of the Student Board are often held in the club.
