How to finance your doctorate?

The smooth progress of a doctorate, and especially its duration, are closely linked with the way in which doctoral students support themselves financially and, if applicable, their family.

The doctorate can be financed by an assistantship or by subsidies and/or grants. Some doctoral students work outside the academic institution to cover their daily living expenses.

Each of these scenarios involves different ways of constructively creating a balance between professional activity, thesis and private life.
