Submission of thesis

At the end of your PhD, you will be required to apply for dissertation admission at the Biology and Preclinical Medicine Faculty administration office.

 

Dissertation procedure

Update your profile and digital RIGeL Leistungsheft in the RIGeL Members Area.

Bring the printout  of the digital RIGeL Leistungsheft with all necessary forms (see RIGeL Leistungsheft) to the RIGeL Manangement Assistant. If the requirements are fulfilled, she will sign your RIGeL Leistungsheft. The RIGeL Leistungsheft must be submitted afterwards with your thesis.

Choose the members of your thesis committee (examination board). We suggest that the mentoring team is also the thesis committee. However, the external mentor cannot be the third examiner on the thesis committee; this is excluded by the doctoral regulations. The external mentor can only be the second PhD assessor. Mentors from the University Hospital are already external.

Please submit your thesis with the application for thesis submission and all required documents (see PhD application for admission) at the Biology and Preclinical Medicine Faculty administration office: Deadlines for submission
