Individual Doctorate

The so-called individual doctorate is the classic form of pursuing a doctorate in Germany. It is characterized in particular by the one-to-one supervision of doctoral researchers by a university member who can serve as supervisor. As a rule, the doctoral researchers themselves find a supervisor and agree with this person on the research topic. The doctoral researchers at KIT are usually involved in a working group and / or research groups and industrial projects. Funding is often provided via third-party funded projects from industry and research or ▶ individual scholarships.

There is no central point where you can apply for an individual doctorate. You have to become active yourself and find a ▶ supervisor.
