Doctoral Procedure

Important notes

Since 30.03.2018, the new State Higher Education Law (LGH) has been effective. According to § 38 (5), "Persons who have been accepted as doctoral candidates shall be matriculated in accordance with § 60 (1) sentence 1 letter b; this does not apply to accepted doctoral candidates who are working more than 50% at the university if they have previously declared in writing to the Rectorate that they do not wish to be matriculated."
In this context, we refer you to the matriculation obligation. The concrete measures for the enforcement of the legal requirement at the University of Heidelberg are in preparation.

Since 01.01.2018, the scope of the Maternity Protection Act (MuSchG) has expanded. Further information can be found at the Office of doctoral affairs and on the university's websites.

There are new writing guidelines for the dissertation. The University Library offers adapted citation styles for EndNote and Citavi.

Future doctoral candidates are asked to be aware that foreign educational qualifications must first be verified for equivalence to a German university degree before they can be accepted at the faculty. Since this may take several months at the Central Office for Foreign Education in Bonn, depending on the country, the relevant documents should be submitted by the supervisor as early as possible.
