Doing your PhD at Hochschule Bremerhaven

PhD Support and Counseling

At our Hochschule we welcome scholars who are interested in doing a PhD and pursuing their academic career


Doing a PhD in Bremerhaven

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.

PhD Counseling at Hochschule Bremerhaven

PhD counseling is open everyone interested in doing a PhD and scholars already engaged in their PhD project at Bremerhaven. The office for PhD counseling offers individual counseling for interested students and scholars in all stages of their PhD project.

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.
