Registering your doctoral project

Registering via docDaten

As a doctoral candidate at FAU you must register your doctoral project when you start working on it.

It only takes 10 minutes to register online.

Advantages of registration

  • valid for the entire process of completing your doctoral degree
  • official status as a member of FAU as a doctoral candidate, regardless of whether you have a contract with or are enrolled at the University
  • reliable documentation of the process starting from receipt of your confirmation of supervision
  • early clarification of requirements for admission and examination
  • clear overview of the current status of the process
  • greater legal security

Enrolment is not the same as registration via docDaten.

Registration is not the same as admission.

  1. Register yourself and your doctoral project in our docDaten database.
  2. Submit all required documents in order to be granted admission by the Office of Doctoral Affairs. All the required documents are available for you to download from the docDaten database.

If you decide to end your doctoral degree before graduation, please complete and return the de-registration form to the Office of Doctoral Affairs or the Graduate Centre.
