A few student studying on a table.

Do you have a master's or similar degree? And would you like to go further into research in the humanities? Then a PhD might be for you.

Our PhD programmes are hands-on. You conduct research from day one, giving you the opportunity to develop your own ideas within the theme of a research group. You will do so in close contact with supervisors and colleagues throughout the PhD programme.
