Research Department

The Research Department is in charge of all issues related to research funding. We provide information on national, european and other international funding schemes and support you in raising external funding for research projects. Moreover, the Research Department oversees the Research Committee of the Senate.

Generally, a completed doctorate is a precondition to apply for third party funding from funding authorities in the area of research. The Office of Student Affairs provides general information on earning a doctoral degree at the University of Göttingen. The Göttingen graduate schools provide information on possibilities to fund doctoral studies on their respective web pages.
