Open Invitation

Pre-Graduate Retreat

DDSA Pre-Graduate Retreat – August 2024

Are you a bachelor’s- or master’s student with data science as a key component of your study programme? Would you like to know more about pursuing a PhD in data science? Are you in doubt about what career paths a PhD may open? And are you interested in how data science research impacts the world around you?

Yes? Then keep reading!


You would probably enjoy spending time with 50 equally curious and engaged students from a variety of study programmes across Denmark. And you would be excited to meet a line-up of PhD students, researchers, and professionals sharing their experiences and answering your questions in an informal setting.

Now: Check your calendar for August 14-15.

Free? So is participation! You only need to pay your own travel expenses.

Apply to join us no later than Thursday, June 13.

Dates: August 14 @ 12:00 to August 15 @ 15:00, 2024
