Doing a PhD should be well considered. Taking up a doctorate marks the beginning of a long, challenging and often precarious phase of life.
We offer scholars a cooperative PhD. A cooperative PhD is conducted in cooperation with a university and PhD students are supervised at Bremerhaven as well as at the cooperating institution. The doctoral degree is awarded by the cooperating university.
Hochschule Bremerhaven has an agreement of cooperation with the University of Bremen for doing cooperative PhDs. The University of Bremen supports scholars of Hochschule Bremerhaven in finding a supervisor for their PhD project. However, a cooperation with every other university is possible and encouraged. Currently PhD students of our Hochschule cooperate with a variety of different institutions.
Note also that it will soon be possible to do a PhD directly at Bremerhaven for specific research fields. (More information will be availabe here soon.)
We offer PhD students and researchers interested in doing a PhD different kinds of support: individual counseling, networking, advanced training and financial support for starting a PhD at Bremerhaven.
Individual counseling for scholars interested in doing a PhD may adress the following questions: Why do a PhD? How and where do I find funding? How do I get started?
Individual counseling for scholars already doing a PhD may take up the following issues and questions: funding, follow-up funding, timeline, find a supervisor, find partners for cooperative PhD, PhD milestones (registration, exposé/synopsis, thesis defence, etc.), motivation, self-organization, networking local and as part of a scientific community.
Feel free make an appointment if you are interested in PhD counseling (see Link below).
