A doctorate cannot be obtained directly from the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law. Instead, doctoral degrees (and other academic qualifications) can only be awarded by universities and equivalent institutions. The International Max Planck Research Schools, which are operated in collaboration with various universities and offer structured training programs, represent a unique opportunity for doctoral students.
The International Max Planck Research Schools (IMPRS) are an important means of fostering young researchers at the institutes of the Max Planck Society. At the Research Schools run by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in cooperation with other Max Planck Institutes and selected universities, doctoral students are expected to earn their degrees in two years. The IMPRS are designed for outstanding young researchers from around the world who are selected on the basis of regular calls for applications.
