Doctoral Procedure: Initiation of the Doctoral Procedure
Information on digital oral examinations can be found under “Documents and services” under “Documents and forms for digital oral examinations”.
Please pay attention to the individual PhD collection dates (PST) when making your appointment.
When the procedure is opened electronically, the dissertation (corrector’s version), the current CV, the list of publications and the declaration of co-authors are uploaded as PDF documents to DocDaten.
Once the dissertation has been submitted and the first review has been received, the registration for the doctorate/start of the doctoral procedure can no longer be withdrawn. If the candidate withdraws from the examination after this point in time without good reason, the examination is deemed to have been failed. If the applicant is ill, a medical certificate must be submitted to the doctoral office.
Your supervisor will confirm successful completion of the doctoral programme on page 3 of the application to open the procedure.
