The Graduate Center KW aims to maintain and strengthen relationships with alumni of Paderborn University. The GKW alumni network is established in several ways:
- Regular events with scholars who have earned their PhDs in the Arts and Humanities and who speak about their career paths outside of academia
- An alumni database on KOMO, where you can find profiles of our alumni featuring their job experience as well as their contact details.
- Events such as get-togethers for graduates and alumni with PhDs
"Look around for career paths outside academia early on."
