Important documents for doctoral candidates at TU Darmstadt

The general framework for a doctorate at the Technische Universität Darmstadt is the General Doctoral Regulations. In addition, nearly all departments have defined additional Special Provisions, which complement the document of the university and reflect specific features of the department. Together, these documents set the general process and the regulations for doctoral studies at the TU Darmstadt as well as in the respective department.

Many of these documents are only available in German. The documents that are only available in German will be marked with (DE) after their name.
