Admission and general information
The Graduate School in conjunction with the Universität Hamburg offers a doctoral program for students that culminates in the degree ‘Dr. rer. nat.’.
Anyone who has successfully applied for one of our positions can participate in this program.
Students must have obtained the minimum of a Master's degree in Physics, Chemistry or Biology or an equivalent. Please, note that the specialisation needed depends on the particular project: "CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter" is a highly interdisciplinary research cluster involving many different disciplines.
With respect to grades, it is expected that students applying for entrance to the Graduate School have the equivalent of the (average) grade minimum 2,0 in the German system. This corresponds to an “B+” grade or better in the American or English system. Thus, a certificate of the university of origin attesting your average grade or, alternatively called, the Grade Point Average (GPA) is mandatory. Such a proof is not necessary when the average grade is reported on the Master certificate.
Detailed information on the graduate school regulations can be found in the welcome booklet (PDF).
