Acceptance of doctoral project and matriculation

Acceptance of doctoral research project: In order to complete your doctorate at Kiel University successfully your doctoral research project has to be accepted officially by one of the faculties. The requirements for an acceptance are regulated in the Principles for Doctoral Degree Regulations and in the Doctoral Degree Regulations.

Registration with the Graduate Center: Once you have been officially accepted as a doctoral candidate you can register with the Graduate Center in order to use its services. Please use our online registration portal for registering with the Center (and later for all our courses).

Matriculation: You have the possibility to matriculate as a doctoral student. Please consider the respective provision of the Hochschulgesetz of the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein and the respective doctoral degree regulations. You can find copious information about the matriculation on the pages of the Studierendenservice (Student Service) of the university. If you are not a German citizen different rules for matriculation apply. You can find information about deadlines for matriculation, matriculation fees and manner of payment here.

Admission to the doctoral examination procedure: The doctorate concludes with the doctoral examination procedure. The procedure consists of the submission of the doctoral thesis and an oral examination. The doctoral degree regulations of your faculty specify which requirements you must meet and which form the examination procedure takes.

Exmatriculation: With the successful completion of the last, oral examination your status as a doctoral candidate ends formally. If you are still immatriculated at this point you must contact the Studierendenservice and submit an application for exmatriculation; you must do this until the end of the semester in which the oral examination took place. Only after your application has been processed you will receive a confirmation of your exmatriculation. You will also receive a statement about the period of time you have been immatriculated, which you will need for your statutory pension plan.

If you do not submit such an application the Studierendenservice will issue a re-immatriculation ban once your faculty has notified the Studierendenservice of the successful completion of your doctoral examination. Since you then cannot immatriculate again you will be expelled. This process is not an alternative to the application for exmatriculation. You still have to submit the application if you would like to receive the confirmation of your exmatriculation and the statement for your statutory pension plan.
