PhD students

PhD students can complete either research stays of one of more semesters or their entire doctorate at Viadrina. Please note that PhD studies in Germany usually last at least three years. However, the PUEDES funding will last max. 22 months. In case you apply for a complete doctorate, you must make sure that you have sufficient funds to finish your studies.

In any case, a professor from Viadrina has to agree to supervise you. If you want to carry out your entire doctorate at Viadrina, you moreover have to be admitted to the doctorate by the Doctoral Committee of the relevant Faculty. Please note the detailed academic offering of Viadrina as well as the relevant language and other requirements, which are outlined on the project website. In any case, please contact Viadrina’s PUEDES Coordinator Grietje Zimmermann first. She will answer your questions and put you in contact with the relevant Department.

More information on doing a PhD at Viadrina is available on the website of the Viadrina Center for Graduate Studies.
