Finishing your PhD

Finishing your PhD:

The PhD process is finished after you have published your fit-to-print dissertation and received your doctoral degree certificate. For more details, please read the Doctoral Degree Regulations. If you need an english version of your doctoral degree certificate, please let us know in advance according to § 28 sentence (3) of the Doctoral Degree Regulations.

Due to archive requirements, the library requires printed copies printed on durable, acid-free non-wood paper that is well-bound (no spiral binding, no staples, no metal rails, etc.).  Soft cover publication (i.e. cardboard cover with glued binding) is sufficient. Please also inform yourself also at the University Library.
