Phase 2: Doctoral studies

The main objective is the carrying out of scientific tasks within the framework of the PhD and the preparation of the thesis. This is usually done in your mentor's work group.

To acquire further occupation-related knowledge and abilities, students should carry out activities in addition to their research work to develop their teaching skills, their ability to express themselves in writing as well as orally, project acquisition and management. This also includes activities which contribute to the guided research. Examples of these activities are the preparation and carrying out of parts of a lecture, supervision of seminars, conference contributions and assistance in project applications. All of these activities are offered by the faculty.

After approximately three years the doctoral studies phase should be finished and the thesis should be submitted to the faculty.
