Doctoral degrees

Doctoral degrees between 2014–2016

Doctoral degrees are postgraduate degrees leading to a specialised career in research, industry or the public sector. For many years, FAU has been running special measures and programmes designed to support young researchers. The success of these methods is reflected in the high number of doctoral degrees which are completed at the University.

This page provides a breakdown of the number of doctoral degrees according to faculty. More statistics for all doctoral degrees completed after 1999 are available in the PDFs at the bottom of the page.
