Information on the publication series [ The ULB Münster publishes your doctoral thesis on the document server miami and provides archiving.
In addition to the digital publication, you can also order a printed version via the ULB.
The required German language skills depend on which subject you want to do your doctorate in, and in which language you want to write your dissertation.
Many departments also accept dissertations written in English.
However, they might have a few advanced lectures, summer schools or Ph D programs.
"Fast Track Programmes" offered by some universities start after the bachelor’s degree.
The duration of the Ph D is not standard, and is usually between 2 and 6 years depending on the research field.
Ph D in natural and exact sciences are usually between 4 and 5 years.
Ph D candidates can apply for a scholarship or grant themselves, but often the supervisor (Doktorvater) proposes the doctoral candidate for a grant.
Most scholarships and grants can be complemented by a number of one-off payments and subsidies, for example for families with children, for research trips, or consumables.
