PhD studies consist of:

- a public defense in the major of geography. Based on the successful completion of post-graduate studies, the student will acquire the degree “Doctor of Natural Sciences” (Doctor rerum naturalium, Dr.rer.nat. for short).
Some PhD students form an open, self-gouverning network with monthly meetings.
Interested candidates are hearty welcome.
