Procedure for Prospective Doctoral Degree Students with a Foreign Degree
Prior to admission to study for a doctorate, the foreign degree must first be deemed equivalent to a German university degree.
Please contact the Office of the Doctoral Degree Committee, bringing with you your application documents and copies of your master’s and bachelor’s degree certificates in the original language along with any other appropriate certificates.
Enrollment to study for a doctorate
You may enroll to study for a doctorate at the TUHH once you have been granted admission to do so. In the interim prior to admission you may enroll to study for the purpose of academic further education. This enrollment category is limited to two semesters. For both categories there is an upper income limit based on the fellowship allowance of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for doctoral fellowships. Please contact email@example.com in this matter.
