Registration and Enrolment at University

► Doctoral researchers at the IMPRS-GM must register as doctoral candidates at the faculty of the university where they plan to earn their doctoral degree. The application for admission to the doctoral procedure is usually directed to the Committee for Doctoral Examinations of the respective faculty.

It is important to distinguish this registration process from enrolling as a student at university, which is not obligatory. However, obtaining student status offers numerous benefits, such as free public transportation, discounts at university dining facilities, and reduced entry to exhibitions and cultural events.

Please note, these are two different processes with different deadlines and regulations. In addition, every higher education institution has its own rules when it comes to admission as a doctoral candidate or enrolment as a student.
