Doctoral study with a foreign university degree
If you have earned a Law degree from a foreign university which is equivalent to the German state examination, you may apply for admission to a PhD programme in Münster and earn a doctorate in Law. Prior to gaining admission, you must demonstrate that you have sufficient knowledge of German law. You can meet this requirement by completing a one-year master’s degree programme in German Law and achieving a final grade of at least “magna cum laude”.
Once you have met these prerequisites, you may seek contact with a professor at the Faculty of Law who would be willing to supervise your doctoral project.
