How to do a doctorate at Freie Universität Berlin

Doctoral research abroad is exciting but can also be a bit daunting. Especially the first steps on the way towards a "traditional" doctoral degree in Germany - the so-called "Individualpromotion" provide considerable challenges for junior researchers from abroad.

During our project FUBright, supported by the German Academic Exchange Service and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we collected a number of questions (and answers) on the topic and turned them into the short video "How to do your doctorate at Freie Universität Berlin".
