Considering a doctorate?

The University offers two options: you may pursue individual studies with the support of a doctoral advisor who is an expert in your area of interest, or choose from more than 30 structured programs. Doctoral programs combine our strong academic environment with individual attention from experts in your field – including annual retreats and regular meetings with your thesis committee.

If you are planning to start your doctorate thesis at the University of Bonn, we recommend to contact the Faculty/PhD office to get information on the requirements and the admission process in time.

Please be aware that if you would like to join a Graduate School (a structured program) the application process may be different! Please contact the administration of your desired Graduate School regarding the entrance requirements! After receiving an admission letter from the faculty or the Graduate School, you may enroll at the Studierendensekretariat of the University of Bonn.
