Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - Institute of Asian and African Studies


There is no formal PhD course of South Asian Studies, but doctoral candidates are free to participate in all courses offered at the Seminar. Credits are awarded only for attendance of such courses only if stipulated in the requirements of the students‘ respective mother discipline. Such requirements normally apply to students who have migrated from another discipline (Seiteneinsteiger).

As a general rule, candidates are required to present their work at the Doctoral Candidates‘ Colloquium, a fixture run by the Seminar, within one semester. The colloquium serves as a platform to discuss work in progress.

For general information contact the office of promovation affairs (Frau Estermann). For an individual and technical consultation, you can contact the FachstudienberaterInnen of South Asian Seminar.
