Bourse d’études Allemagne 2021 / 2022 : PhD program at

University of Bonn

Description

As one of only eleven Universities of Excellence in Germany, we are the only of our peers with six Clusters of Excellence. Recent decades have seen us produce more winners of the Nobel Prize and Fields Medal than any other German university. The University of Bonn has a 200-year history of combining excellent research in a range of disciplines with research-led teaching.

As one of the best research-led universities in Germany with an international reputation as a leading institution of research and teaching, the University of Bonn plays host to a number of prize-winning researchers spread across a range of disciplines. Our two hundred year history of academic excellence is based on a number of simple yet effective elements: high-quality academic research, a research-led teaching curriculum, the international flair of Bonn as the German city of the United Nations and our location in the Rhineland, not only a highly-networked region of academic excellence, but also a region providing a high quality of life.
