IPC- International Postgraduate Center Social Sciences
The International Postgraduate Center Social Sciences (IPC) is one of forty-two International PhD Programs (IPPs), pilot projects that received initial funding from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Research Foundation (DFG). The IPC offers a structured and closely supervised course of postgraduate study with a strong international orientation and a range of academic and more general supervisory measures in order to improve the quality of dissertations and facilitate the completion of research work within a three-year time frame. The IPC program helps prepare doctoral students for later professional projects in both academic as well as non-academic areas. One of the IPC’s further goals is to continuously increase the number of doctoral students from abroad.
The IPC has become part of the Graduate Center of Social Sciences (GRASOC)
