Structured graduate programs for young academics
The University of Bonn offers the new generation of academics a broad spectrum of graduation opportunities within structured graduate programs in various fields of research. The University of Bonn's graduate schools have been united within the university-wide Bonn internationally Graduate Schools (BIGS) system. The BIGS board of speakers promotes the establishment of further graduate schools and shares its joint experience with others. The incorporation of new graduate school into the BIGS group requires the approval of the Rectorate. More information is offered on the website of our Bonn International Graduate Schools (BIGS).
Moreover, the University of Bonn maintains several Doctoral Programs as well as an overwhelming number of Third-Party Funded Graduate Institutions (Graduate Schools within the German Excellence Initiative, DFG Research Training Groups, etc.).
