Exclusively and free of charge for our members, we will again be offering three-month access to the digital learning platform TwentyOne Skills for doctoral researchers and early postdocs from April.

The TwentyOne Skills learning platform currently offers over 40 courses and is constantly being expanded and updated. The range includes "bestsellers" such as Presentation Skills, Science Communication, Time Management and Leadership. But new topics such as agility, AI in Academia or mental health can also be developed online in "nuggets" of max. 20 minutes or "deep dives" of up to 3 hours. One-hour live events on various topics are also offered.

With the platform, we are supplementing our range of one- to two-day face-to-face workshops with a digital and freely accessible training option for early career researchers.

For the period from April to June 2024, we are again granting new access to the platform. Please register via our online form and we will send you the access data by email shortly afterwards. We also still have a few licenses available for the period until the end of December.

These are the opinions of our previous participants:

  • “It was really helpful to learn skills which are required in companies and are not important at university yet.”
  • “This quenched my thirst for learning because it is a complete package to shape one's career in any field.”
  • “It covers a lot of challenges of doctoral students.”


To take advantage of this offer, you must be a member of the Graduate Academy Leipzig. Doctoral researchers only need confirmation of the conclusion of a supervision agreement and acceptance on a faculty's list of doctoral researchers.
