Documents for Submitting a Dissertation

Since no personal consultation hours can be offered at present, the procedure has changed. Please upload all documents (including the application) to Docfile and send them in paper form to the doctoral office. Doctoral certificates must be submitted in the original. Applications according to the Doctoral Regulations 2015 only need to send Bachelor's and Master's certificates and diplomas if they were not yet available at the time of application for admission to the doctoral programme. You will be notified when the application has been reviewed and you will be admitted to the doctoral examination. Then send the copies of the dissertation to your reviewers. Ask them beforehand whether a bound copy and/or a digital version is required.

For the submission of the application a large number of preliminary enquiries have been received, so that a processing time of up to four weeks can be expected. You can therefore send your dissertation copies to your examiners in advance, stating that they will be sent to you with reservations as you have not yet been admitted to the examination.


  • CGS certificates confirming 30 ETCS credit points: a CGS certificate can be obtained for every course with ECTS points listed on the CGS course list.
