Application for admission as a collegiate within the Integrated Track

When applying for admission to doctoral studies, applicants may additionally apply to join the ‘Integrated Track’ – the structured doctoral model at the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School – as a collegiate. The structured doctoral model not only allows doctoral students to pursue their doctoral dissertation project in a lively interdisciplinary research environment but also offers excellent supervision and optimal working conditions, enabling doctoral students to complete a high-quality dissertation within three years.

Each year, the programme starts in April. In order to be admitted to the Integrated Track, applicants must have obtained an average grade of at least 2.0 (according to the German grading system). Additionally, short-listed candidates will be asked for an interview in February. The admissions committee of the Integrated Track decides upon all applications.

Collegiates do not receive funding from the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School. Doctoral students may apply separately for funding opportunities within the Integrated Track, such as scholarships or doctoral fellowships, which are usually announced in autumn.
