The International Max Planck Research Schools for Molecular Biology and Neurosciences in Gttingen (Germany) as Examples for Joint Doctoral Training by a German University and Its Non-University Partners
Burkhardt, Steffen; Neher, Erwin
Higher Education in Europe, v33 n1 p27-34 Apr 2008
New concepts of higher education have recently been implemented through the MSc/PhD programmes in Molecular Biology and Neurosciences in the International Max Planck Research Schools, due to close cooperation between the University of Gttingen, three Max Planck Institutes and the German Primate Centre. The novel measures include a three stage selection of applicants, structured PhD training in English, doctoral thesis committees, and comprehensive services and support for the international student community. All university and non-university faculty members are equally involved in training, supervision, and examinations. The close cooperation significantly improved synergies between the participating institutions and led to new collaborations within the Gttingen science community.
