FAQ | Doctoral degree program registration (Admission)

The registration should be submitted at the beginning of the doctoral degree program if possible, but at the latest within the first 2 years (by email as pdf-file).

Further information

In principle, it would also be possible to register at a later date, but this is subject to a blocking period of 2 years, i.e. the dissertation may only be submitted 2 years after receipt of the registration.

If you were already registered at another university and register for a doctoral degree program with us after deregistering there, you will of course not receive a blocking period.

You are only entitled to submit a dissertation to the Department of Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy once you have been admitted. For externally supervised students, this is also linked to the necessary commitment of a professor from our department, whose primary employment is with the university, as a second reviewer; capacities are generally limited here. If you do not fulfil the admission requirements according to § 3 of the doctoral regulations, in many cases conditions must still be fulfilled, such as attendance of courses, knowledge level examinations, etc., for which it is again necessary that there is still a corresponding remaining period of the standard time to completion.
