For starting a doctorate at the TU Darmstadt, an online registration is obligatory.
At the same time, the enrolment as student is optional. For scholarship holders, however, enrolment is recommended. The registration and/or the enrolment are possible throughout the academic year and do not have a deadline.
In order to proceed with the online registration, you need a supervisor’s confirmation from the respective faculty of our university.
Before proceeding with the application, please choose the right application portal according to the country of the university entrance qualification (Hochschulzugangsberechtigung). People with German university entrance qualification must use the webportal TUCaN, with a university entrance qualification from another country the webportal movein.
International doctoral candidates who need a student visa for entry into Germany can get their acceptance from the department later after their arrival. Initially they enrol as a “student without degree”. For this written confirmation of supervision from the supervisor at TU Darmstadt is necessary. With this status, a visa can be applied for as soon as you have received confirmation of matriculation.
By enrolling as a doctoral student, you become a member of the university and are given student status.
