The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
A spatial sciences program can help students learn about a variety of different types of data which are related to places and locations. They can include a range of topics, such as surveying, remote sensing, data management, statistics, and cartography.
In all, there are over 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate level. With more and more of these organizations offering English as the language of education for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now of higher quality than ever before. Universities in Europe offer a friendly welcome to foreign students and to give a course of knowledge that meets their profession needs in today’s global demand.

The Solar System School
The "International Max Planck Research School for Solar System Science at the University of Göttingen" (IMPRS, Solar System School) is a collaboration of the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and the University of Göttingen offering an international PhD programme in physics.
The Solar System School is a research-oriented graduate programme hosted by the Max Planck Institute (MPS) on the Göttingen Campus in the centre of Germany. In this unique environment, the IMPRS School is run jointly with the Institute for Astrophysics and the Institute of Geophysics. Junior researchers joining the doctoral programme will find that these institutes offer excellent facilities, internationally renowned researchers and experienced teachers, and provide excellent conditions to specialise in the field of Solar System science....
