Double Degree PhD-Programme in cooperation with the University of Padua (Italy)
Doctoral students taking part in this Double-Degree PhD-Programme are supervised by Thesis Advisory Committees consisting of scientists from Ulm and Padua. The students spend a part of their studies (in total 6 months) in both Germany and Italy to achieve a double diploma that is recognized by both universities.
The Double Degree PhD-Programme between the IGradU (Ulm University) and Scuola di Dottorato in Bioscienze e Biotecnologie (University of Padua, Italy) was launched in 2009 and has been well-running from that time on.
We are glad and proud to announce on that place that in December 2013 IGradU's doctoral student Ivonne Brock successfully defended her PhD-thesis and is thus the first degree-holder of the double-degree PhD-programme.
