Info for PhD students

The German doctorate enjoys an outstanding reputation. Germany’s research institutions, universities and companies welcome international researchers and offer excellent opportunities for doctoral students. Structured PhD programmes, for example, often have a strong international orientation with English as the team language.

Roughly 29,000 graduate students complete a doctorate in Germany every year – far more than in any other member state of the European Union. Every year, over 5,500 international scholars are awarded a doctoral degree by a German university.
