Applications for PhD programmes can be made throughout the year on the university’s application portal.
For help with applications, see “Help with applications and enrolment”.
Important information: If you graduated from a higher education institution abroad and don’t have German citizenship, you will need to contact Paderborn University’s International Office to apply.
Please note: Paderborn University teaching staff/employees wishing to study on a PhD programme will also need to submit an application. You will need a separate applicant account for this. Please contact our support team: bewerbung(at)uni-paderborn(dot)de
