DFG – Postgraduate programmes

Postgraduate programmes are institutions of higher education for supporting the next generation of scientists.  The focus here is on the qualification of doctoral students within the framework of a thematically focused and largely interdisciplinary research programme, as well as a structured qualification concept. The maximum duration of the German Research Foundation’s postgraduate programmes is nine years (comprising two funding periods of four-and-a-half years each).

International postgraduate programmes represent a special type of programme, which offer joint doctoral training between a group at a German university and a partner group abroad.
