By participating in a number of externally funded projects, doctoral candidates learn to perform independent scientific work. Through active participation in the scientific affairs of the faculty or the Geoscience Centre, students acquire knowledge and skills that go beyond a curricular programme of study.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
The PhD programme Geoscience is based on three research foci of the faculty. These are:
You must have a Master‘s Degree or a proof of equivalent academic achievement. Usually, a final grade point average of at least 2.5 on the German grading scale (which equals good or B+) is required.
Usually, the research group or department provides funding to their doctoral students in the form of either an employment contract or a scholarship (approx. monthly amount of scholarship or net salary: 1100-1400 EUR).
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
