"Special thanks to the staff members of the Graduate School. The study programs could not exist without coordinators that act almost invisibly behind the scenes, administrating and organizing every bit of our everyday student life at university. They support us with help and advice for every little problem. They kindly remind us of due dates. They ensure that the organization of our studies runs smoothly such that we can focus on our main interest: studying. Thank you very much for your patience with us!"
