YoungBuzz Studyabroad Counselor - The German doctorate enjoys an outstanding reputation in all disciplines. In Germany some 25,000 graduates successfully complete the doctoral process every year – far more than in any other European country. In Germany there are different ways of doing a PhD:
Individual Doctorate
International PhD students can choose between some 140 universities that are entitled to award doctorates. Non-university research establishments such as the Max Planck Society (MPG) also offer an excellent research environment to conduct research. It is also possible to study for a doctorate while working in a research job in industry.
Structured PhD Programmes
In addition, Germany also offers the possibility of studying for a PhD within a structured PhD programme. There are some 600 PhD programmes in Germany that are very similar to the PhD programmes in English-speaking countries.

Any German funding organizations support highly talented international PhD students. As a rule, the prerequisite is an above-average first degree. Different institutions sometimes have additional expectations, e.g. a specific commitment to a social, sociopolitical or religious cause. A scholarship is granted for a limited time, as a rule for two to three years, and students usually have to reapply every year. Organizations that provide scholarships for outstanding students usually also support them with seminars and opportunities to exchange views within an alumni network.
