Information for PhD Students

Before starting the research for the dissertation an application for admission is required. The english application form is available at the dean’s office (at the room P2-04-507) or here. It has to be filled in and addressed to the dissertation committee. After the dissertation committee has given its permission for admission, the research study can begin. If the committee denies the admission, preliminary studies have to be successfully completed before starting with the dissertation.

For the preliminary and the research studies it is necessary to enroll at the registrar’s office first. The program of the dissertation study is summarized in paragraph 9 of the new regulations for the dissertation. The achievements of the study are certified in a study book, which is available in German. The contents of the preliminary study, if necessary, are determined by the dissertation committee.

You can find regulations for the PhD examinations here. Please be aware that solely the german version of the regulations for PhD examinations is the official and legally binding version.

For the submission of the dissertation you will find the form here.
