Glomar offers three different categories of courses:

Introductory Courses (I)

aim at providing first year PhD students with a comprehensive overview of the marine sciences. In following the idea of interdisciplinary exchange, two introductory courses have been specifically designed to introduce the natural marine sciences to social scientists and vice versa.

Expert Courses (E)

aim at providing all PhD students with topic related expert knowledge in a condensed format. This saves time otherwise spent in long lasting literature reviews, which can then be used for PhD students' own research.

Transferable Skill Courses (TS)

aim at providing all PhD students with competence related to leardership, communication, presentation, teamwork, etc. and skills such as project or time management.
