Close Relationship between Research and Teaching

IN-EAST attaches great importance to a close combination of research and teaching in training the next generation of researchers. At the IN-EAST School, scientists who hold a doctoral degree have the opportunity, with specific mentoring and development support, to manage their own research groups. The goal is to promote the education of highly qualified scholars for top research positions in the future. The Research Training Group and the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies meanwhile provide PhD students with a sound framework for completing their projects and qualifying in disciplinary research methods and theories with solid language and regional competencies. IN-EAST offers degrees on the first two levels of the Bologna Process with its research-oriented MA and BA programmes.
