14 Centralised Recruitment International marketing Calls for application Permanent general call for applications Additional specific calls for thematically focussed research trainings (e.g., DFG-GK, EU-MC-EST,...) Application form Self evaluation Research proposal Transcripts & certificates Letters of recommendation Evaluation Elegibility Preliminary ranking Structured interviews Short-term project

15 International Admissions Application GSCB Office elegibility, preliminary ranking Recommendation Doctorate Board Admission Supervision? Funding? Yes/No Members of Faculty: Professor 1, Professor 2,..., Professor X

16 Management Advisory Board incl. Dean, Head of Doctorate Board and 2 additional Profs. Speaker Prof. W. Sander Scientific Coordinaton Dr. T. Koch General Administraton G. Talbot Objectives 1. Implementation of international doctoral programme 2. Aquisition of external funds 3. Institutionalisation

17 Financial Aspects EU (MC-EST) DAAD (PHD) Total Budget Initial Funding Successful evaluation & aquisition of new funding Calender Year

18 Added Value and Sustainability Benefits of faculty-wide GSCB Improves guidance and qualification of individual doctoral students with academic, administrative and social support close to the actual person Focusses organisatorial resources related to cross-disciplinary research training and recruitment of international graduate students Enhances the international exposure of faculty research Ideal host for externally funded research trainings and networks Medium-term funding largely secured through external sources

19 Key Issues Transition from pilot project to permanent infrastructure Integration into university budget Faculty-wide vs. larger organisational structure Integration of Master programmes into Graduate School Level of English communication skills in wider University administration RUB Institutional Perspective University-wide Research School - 3 scientific sections - International Postgraduate Center
