Doctoral Studies at the Brandt School

Prospective doctoral students with a graduate degree, above-average grades and a strong research proposal in one of our four research clusters are invited to apply for doctoral studies at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy.

If you wish to apply for doctoral studies at the Brandt School, you should first make sure that your research interest fits within one of our fields of expertise. These are clustered into five research areas: Methods of Public Policy, International Conflict Management, Entrepreneurship and Public Policy, Varieties of Governance, and Development and Socio-Economic Policies.

Doctoral studies at the Brandt School focus on individual research projects, which are closely supervised by a member of our academic staff. There is no binding curriculum that needs to be completed during doctoral studies. However, doctoral students are required to take part in the monthly research colloquia at the Brandt School, which gives candidates the opportunity to present and discuss their research. We also encourage our doctoral students to participate in conferences and, for more advanced doctoral students, to teach at the Brandt School.
