Latest information on oral examinations (disputations):

Due to the currently prescribed preventive measures in connection with the Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2), oral examinations (disputations) in examination phases 1 and 2 will prospectively not be held as face-to-face examinations.
In consultation with the respective examining boards, online examination forms will be organized for phases 1 and 2 where appropriate.

At present, face-to-face examinations will be resumed for examination phases 3 and 4.
We will inform you about the further organisation of the oral examinations on this page.

Dates and deadlines for submission

Since the Summer Semester of 2013, all doctoral procedures have been synchronised. As a consequence, there are fixed deadlines for the submission of applications for a PhD at the Faculty of Human Sciences (see table below). These deadlines, too, determine the earliest possible date for the obligatory viva.

The following deadlines have been set:
