Application deadline for the Graduate School: 15th August
Credits and skills acquired in the framework of the interdisciplinary Global Studies Doctoral Program are listed in a Diploma Supplement, which will be handed out along with the doctoral degree certificate. For earning this supplement, you will have to acquire a total of 20 ECTS that you can, as a rule, collect over the course of 6 terms. We believe that you are the expert when it comes to your doctoral research project, so you can acquire ECTS by attending from a wide variety of courses and events that are either compulsory (12 ECTS), compulsory-elective (8 ECTS), or elective (not credited).
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
