There is a broad and lively research culture in German Studies at Cambridge, covering topics in literature, linguistics, intellectual and cultural/political history, and film and visual culture. Our PhD students benefit from excellent resources and support, as well as opportunities for exchange with partner universities in Germany and the USA. An outline of the application process, with links to detailed information, can be found at:, and the research profiles of colleagues in German at:  


For candidates wishing to be considered for funding, the deadline for applications is 7 January 2020.

The Section is also pleased to be able to offer a number of German-specific funding opportunities. Candidates applying for 2020 entry will be eligible to be considered for full funding through the Cambridge Schröder Scholarship in German Studies (; and the Tiarks Fund offers part-funding Scholarships to help support PhD students in German ( Information about funding for PhD programmes at Cambridge is also available via the university’s Funding Search Tool (
