Information about the Doctorate Regulations

If you register as a doctoral researcher and your first supervisor or mentor is not a member of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (e.g. of the faculty of medicine or from another university), you will find an exception permit at our undefinedform section.
In order to get your approval, you need to complete the appropiate form and send it via email to the undefinedDean's office.

Please also note the current Doctorate Regulations: 15.06.2018 (German) / 15.06.2018 (English)
