Doctoral Studies

You wish to do a doctorate and make an independent contribution to research within the framework of a doctoral thesis? Very impressive! You have not chosen an easy path. But there’s no cause to question your bold step, because you and your doctorate are in the best hands at the University of Bayreuth and our Graduate School.

The University of Bayreuth Graduate School supervises and supports doctoral students of all subjects who are doing their doctorate in the structured programmes of graduate centres or at one of our seven faculties. We nurture scientific exchange even in the first phase of independent research and support your interdisciplinary education with additional teaching and training opportunities. The University of Bayreuth Graduate School is part of the WiN Academy, which supports you at every stage from doctorate to professorship, and whose advisory and bridging structures ease the transitions between these individual career stages.

Our aim is to create optimal research and learning conditions for doctoral students. And successfully so, because ever more researchers are attracted by the spirit of the University and its excellent research environment.

Among foreign researchers, Bayreuth is even considered one of the most attractive universities in Germany and regularly occupies the top positions in the Humboldt Rankings. The University is very well networked internationally and maintains over 150 partnerships with foreign universities and scientific institutions.
