IP@WWU - International PhD Study at the WWU

is a project promoted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Main goal is to advance internationalisation of the WWU at the level of PhD study.

Our departments and faculties have been internationalising their PhD programmes through research stays abroad or international conferences in Germany.  This is exactly the IP@WWU's objective: with help from its new project, WWU Graduate Centre will be able to support WWU's enrolled PhD students and its PhD applicants through various means, including stipends.

We offer two types of funding twice a year: Research Stipend for PhD Students and Get-To-Know Stipend for PhD Applicants.

The WWU Graduate Centre is there for you!

As the first point of contact for (inter)national doctoral students, the Graduate Centre supports individual "young careers" through various internationalisation and qualification programmes, networking offers and stipends. The diversity of life paths, namely careers in management, academia or journalism, should all be taken into consideration and promoted. The new IP@WWU project thus fits perfectly into the Graduate Centre's efforts.
