The Graduate Centre unites faculty, cross-faculty and cross-university doctoral programmes under one roof along with the individually supervised doctoral and habilitation projects. It is an information centre for all organisational, cross-disciplinary issues that relate to doctorates and habilitations. For this purpose, it advises its target groups in a range of areas, including funding programmes, and offers travel grants and publication subsidies. The Graduate Centre plans and puts together the qualification programme for graduates. It organises related information events for all members of the University of Passau.
Did you enjoy research-based learning during your studies? Then why not turn your interest in academic research into a passion and make it your career? Getting started can be challenging at times because there is a lot to organise. But maybe you are still unsure whether you want to pursue a doctorate? Then our programme for starting out with doctoral study is exactly what you need!
Our programme aims to give students at the final stages of their master's degree programme who are thinking about getting a doctorate the best possible start to their doctoral study. We are planning to launch the programme in winter semester 2021–22. Initialdetails on the program schedule and application are already available.
Advanced doctoral students, doctoral candidates or indeed those who have completed their doctorate can already apply now to become a mentor.
In order to provide you with optimal support and financial security during the transition from your studies to your doctorate, the University of Passau has introduced the bridging scholarship "starter grant".
The grant is intended to give you the opportunity to plan the first steps of your doctorate within an initial period of six months and to prepare an application for further funding of your doctorate. For this purpose, you will receive a position as a graduate assistant at the University of Passau.
Interested? Find out about the requirements and the application procedure and apply by 31 August 2021!
