Doctoral students of the IMPRS‑TP can also opt to graduate at other German or international universities, especially if there are already existing ties to those institutions. However, this path requires the approval of the IMPRS‑TP steering committee. In this case, doctoral students have to conduct and complete their doctoral studies following the guidelines and requirements of the respective university. The IMPRS-TP coordination office will assist you with the process.
