Individual Doctorate

The individual doctorate ("Apprenticeship Model") - independent research under supervision of a so-called "Doktorvater" or "Doktormutter" - is still the most common way to pursue a doctorate in Germany. This usually provides greater freedom as far as the choice of subject is concerned. An individual doctorate can principally be accomplished in any subject area represented by a professorship at FUB or LMU.
