Places in our courses are first allocated to doctoral candidates; any free places left are then offered to postdocs. You will find our  current events here.

The Graduate Center is a central service unit of Kiel University. Together the University Board, the faculties, the interdisciplinary doctoral programmes and the doctoral candidates form the Executive Committee. The Advisory Board has its main function in advising the Executive Committee. There is also an Office.

The University Board, the faculties, professors, coordinators of doctoral programmes and representatives of doctoral candidates have jointly defined the objectives and the organisational structure of the Graduate Center. It is the aim of the Graduate Center to secure a framework for high-quality doctorates at Kiel University in cooperation with the faculties and the doctoral candidates.
