Welcome to the Albertus Magnus Graduate Center!

The Albertus Magnus Graduate Center (AMGC) is the central contact for everyone interested in pursuing a doctorate as well as for all current doctoral candidates at the University of Cologne.

You are welcome to contact the AMGC in case of any question regarding your (prospective) qualification, for example if

  • you have questions about the different paths to a doctoral degree and the respective requirements,
  • you are looking for contact persons in the faculties and doctoral programs,
  • you are from abroad and have questions about the application at the University of Cologne.

The AMGC provides support and advice for doctoral candidates

  • on the acquisition of academic and professional skills,
  • regarding career planning,
  • in case of difficulties or conflicts.

Please note: It is not possible to apply for a doctoral program directly at the AMGC. We gladly forward your application to the desired faculty, graduate school or doctoral program.
