PhD Degree in Germany
The doctoral degree ends with the awarding of the academic title of a doctorate. This involves the completion of a complex scientific research paper (dissertation). There are two paths that you can take: the traditional PhD model or the structured PhD programme. The traditional model involves graduating at a single faculty, supervised by a single professor. Many students prefer this path. By contrast, structured doctoral programmes are generally limited to three years and they include curricular specification and supervision by several scientists.
