Interested in applying to our programme? We welcome your application!

We offer four doctoral study programmes that have separate application processes and deadlines and that differ in other pertinent details. You'll find more comprehensive information on each programme's website: from the GGK 's wide-ranging, foundational offering to the GCSC's internationally directed path and to the largely literary emphasis of the IPP and PhDnet. This table is a side-by-side comparison of the different programmes; using it, you'll be able to find the right fit for your project.

Contact person for the GGK is Julia Michael.

  • The International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (GCSC) evaluates applications twice a year. Deadlines are 1 March (for membership effective in the following October) and 1 October (for membership effective the following April). You may choose to apply for membership only, or for a stipend that would also include membership. Up to 13 doctoral student stipends are awarded each year on 1 October (deadline for applications: 1 February). The application process for stipends is somewhat more involved and is carried out through an online form. Here you'll find information on applying for a stipend, and here is the application portal for membership without a stipend.

If you have questions about the application process which are not covered in our FAQ, please contact the office of the GCSC!

  • Since, to start with, the European PhD-Network Literary and Cultural Studies (PhDnet) is a model initiative with financing allocated for a predetermined period of time, we cannot at this time admit new students to the programme. The Graduate Centre plans to permanently establish and further develop the programme, directly based on the trail being blazed by today's PhDnet students for an internationally cooperative forum of study.
