Surveys about the situation of doctoral candidates

Every year, we conduct a survey about the situation of doctoral candidates in Berlin. One focus is financing of the doctorate, but also other topics are examined. The results are being used by us and many other university institutions to optimize their offers for doctoral candidates. But they are also helpful to individual candidates since a doctorate is often very unique and this way, you learn how your situation compares to others.

The survey 2021 ran from 13.11.21 to 10.1.22. Results in English (pdf)

The survey 2020 ran from 21.7. to 16.8.2020. Results in German (pdf)
