The elite graduate programme at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, together with the University of Regensburg, offers special lectures for an accelerated course of study in the Bachelor and Master’s program. Its goal is to give very talented and productive students the opportunity to achieve their doctoral degree in a total of six years. The research phase usually begins after the third semester and also includes an integrated doctoral level course of lectures. The participation in the accelerated program of study requires very high qualifications, which are to be tested by the selection committee. Further related information can be found on the website.
