Enroling for doctoral studies

In most departments, you must have been enrolled for at least two semesters at HHU in order to be able to commence doctoral examination proceedings. Please enquire at the Dean's Office of the relevant faculty about the exact admission requirements, since you can only enrol after admission for doctoral studies by the respective Dean's office. Doctoral researchers may enrol at HHU at any time and are not bound by the semester closing dates. You may enrol either as a doctoral researcher or a guest doctoral researcher at HHU. If you are financing your doctoral studies through a scholarship, you only have accident insurance cover during your working hours at the University if you are enrolled as a doctoral researcher. This is of particular importance for doctoral researchers working in research laboratories. If you are employed at HHU during your doctoral studies, you automatically have accident insurance cover.

Enroling as doctoral researcher
  • If you are enrolled as a doctoral researcher, you have student status, accident insurance cover during your working hours at HHU and are entitled to the NRW Travel Card, with which you can use all the local transport buses, trams and trains in North Rhine-Westphalia free of charge. You will receive a university identifier which allows you to access IT services at HHU (email account, literature databases etc.), you can use the specialist libraries and pay reduced student prices in the canteen. Scholarship fellows are urgently recommended to enrol as doctoral researchers, since they otherwise have no accident insurance cover during their working hours at HHU. Under certain circumstances, it may be possible as a doctoral researcher to obtain cheaper cover from your health insurer. The social contribution fee for enrolment fee is currently € 280,98 per semester.
