As part of our Network, we offer interested and qualified students the opportunity to write their Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis with joint supervision at one of our partner universities.

You can apply for DAAD-funded scholarships to write your thesis at one of these universities in 2018. The duration of the stay is flexible. The deadline for applications is May 4th, 2018.

For available theses topics, please visit our Open Theses page. You may certainly also propose your own topic.
