Graduate Schools

Excellent PhD support

Graduate Schools provide structured PhD programmes that use targeted measures, such as binding supervision agreements, to support students and create outstanding conditions for doctoral study. They are based on innovative scientific questions and offer interdisciplinary qualifications. Integrating young researchers into Graduate Schools also helps them to identify more with their university.

With the Humboldt Graduate School (HGS) Humboldt-Universität offers an umbrella organisation for those structured PhD programmes and further doctoral programmes. By providing supportive, collaborative services and tailored training programs HGS creates optimal framework conditions for doctoral students during their first independent research activities.
