Doctoral Committee


Meeting schedules of the current Doctoral Committee


Meeting No.Meeting Date Deadline
(11:00 a.m.)*28.02.2018
Doctoral Studies Office closed:
21.05.18 - 25.05.18

* Meets only as needed (in the lecture-free periods)




In order to guarantee the smooth completion of the doctoral examination procedure, we have found that it is efficient to have your documentation for initiating doctoral studies reviewed for completeness about 14 days before the deadline. Problems or questions can then be cleared up in a timely manner before the deadline.

Missing the deadline causes a delay in the submitted procedure because documents that are submitted late cannot be dealt with at the scheduled meeting of the Doctoral Committee.
