Phase 2

Phase 2: Research

The doctoral title is proof of the ability to carry out independent scientific work. You must demonstrate this ability in the research phase of your doctorate. Planning, carrying out and evaluating your research project are the core services of the doctorate and will take up a large part of the time on your way to a doctorate. The research results are then recorded in the dissertation. The dissertation should contribute to gaining scientific knowledge in your sub-discipline.


There are no set deadlines set by the faculty during the research phase. Discuss the schedule of your research project with your supervisor.

Next step

If you and your supervisors agree that your text editor scientific results have achieved the desired content and that a written version with the necessary length is available, then submit the application for admission to the doctorate.
