Universität der Künste Berlin

Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK) is one of the biggest, most diversified and traditional universities of the arts worldwide.

The teaching offered at the four colleges of Fine Art, Design, Music and Performing Arts as well as at the Central Institute of Further Education encompasses the full spectrum of the arts and related academic studies in more than 40 courses. Having the right to confer doctorates and post-doctoral qualifications, the University of the Arts in Berlin is also one of Germany's few art colleges with full university status.

Research at UdK covers a wide field: from experiments in art and design to applied research and classical research in art-related scientific fields. It is possible to work for a doctorate in any subject area at the individual colleges where the university can provide appropriately qualified supervision by academic staff. The prerequisite for doing a doctorate is a degree in a scientific or artistic-scientific study program. In addition to individual doctorates, you can also embark on a doctorate within the interdisciplinary Research Training Group "Knowledge of the Arts".

Interested doctoral candidates are cordially requested to consult the Scientific Council or the coordinator of the Research Training Group. Further information: www.udk-berlin.de/forschung.
