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.

If you opt for single printing (book or photo printing) when publishing your dissertation, for archival reasons your work must be printed on acid-free and age-resistant paper and bound without the use of metal or plastic parts. A perfect bound booklet and double-sided printing are desirable. The choice of format (DIN A4 or DIN A5) is free, as is the choice for black and white or colour printing. Please also inform yourself also at the University Library.
