Artistic-scholarly Doctorate

As of winter term 2009/10 KUG offers the opportunity to graduate from a doctoral program of the arts ("Artistic-scholarly Doctoral Study") in the framework of a three-year doctoral school.

The conception of the new program orientates itself by the recommendations of the Austrian University Conference and, among others, it will integrate the principle of internal communication in the form of presentations of artistic performances and progress reports, the integration of external reviewers and realization of quality-assuring measures already when admitting students and in the later course of the program. For excellent candidates a KUG-financed scholarship system and the increased integration of externally funded artistic research projects will be provided.
