Having participated in the DSS three consecutive years I am truly able to say: the program organization is excellent, the lectures are very well designed and challenging, and the people, the food and the city are just amazing!

Participating in the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School has been an enriching experience for my academic and personal development. Besides the beautiful city the intensive course work and also the network opportunities with like-minded PhD students from different countries have been very valuable.

I really enjoyed the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School. Being enrolled in an excellent class on structural equation modelling with PhD from all over Europe did not only enhance my professional skills but also gave me the opportunity for interesting discussions about different cultures and PhD life in general.
