Procedure for joint PhDs

It is important to distinguish between the procedures for incoming and outgoing joint PhDs. 


PhD students who want to obtain a joint PhD should request this in writing to both universities involved at least one year before the submission of his or her draft thesis. If the application is approved, the PhD student should comply with the regulations of both universities regarding the registration and admission for the public defence of the thesis. (Article 41 "Rules and regulations for all PhD students").
