Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Life Sciences

Doctoral Degree Programs

Doctoral degree programmes offer the opportunity to pursue doctoral studies in a highly interdisciplinary and international atmosphere, and to exchange ideas and network beyond the borders of one’s own research group. Within the framework of a curriculum comprising a combination of subject-specific and general further education and training, these courses guarantee a level of qualification which goes above and beyond the research topic, laying the foundations for a successful career path. In a doctoral degree programme, the thesis is supervised intensively, with the aim of being able to complete the project within a maximum of three years.

Doctoral degree programmes have fixed application deadlines. Please consult the relevant webpages to find out more.


At the Faculty of Life Sciences you can undertake doctoral studies for example in the following structured doctoral degree programmes:
