There are two options to achieve a Doctor’s degree at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar:

As doctoral candidate in a structured doctoral programme or in a research training group you research together with other doctoral candidates. As part of the programme you will be mentored. The participation in courses and colloquia is obligatory.

During an individual doctoral programme you work mainly independently  and with your supervising professor on your research project. Presence and reporting obligations are agreed upon individually.

Please use our online application portal in order to apply for either individual or programme doctoral studies.
