- University of Bayreuth Graduate School (UBTGS)Hide
The University of Bayreuth Gradudate School (UBTGS) is an institution open to all doctoral candidates at the University of Bayreuth and supports all doctorates in the faculties, graduate centers and their doctoral programs. It is a support and service institution for general aspects of doctoral training. It offers numerous interdisciplinary workshops in the qualification programme.
All doctoral candidates of the University of Bayreuth can become members of the UBTGS as a central support and funding institution of the university. The prerequisite is acceptance for doctoral research by a degree granting institution (faculty, graduate school, graduate center). The UBTGS supports all doctoral candidates with measures such as an individual budget or free qualification programs. However, it is not a degree granting institution; you cannot get a doctorate through UBTGS.
The common goal is to foster an international, national and interdisciplinary network of all doctoral candidates and create the best conditions for doctoral training.
