Doctoral Degree Agreement
Preamble
The Doctoral Student and their Supervisor(s), in their capacity of University employee(s), are signing this Doctoral Degree Agreement so as to arrange their supervisory relationship in a transparent way, both content- and time-wise. The Doctoral Degree Agreement guarantees continuous support and counselling to the Doctoral Student during the writing up of their doctoral thesis and specifies mutually agreed on responsibilities of supervisor and supervised. The Supervisor(s) and the Doctoral Student recognise the contents of the agreement as the foundation of the doctoral research relationship and will strive to implement its provisions. The involved parties should plan and conduct the doctoral research so that a doctoral thesis of high quality can be completed within an appropriate time frame. The individual living circumstances of the Doctoral Student are to be taken into consideration. The agreement is drafted with respect to the currently feasible planning period and can be changed and updated through written mutual consent due to scientific problems with the thesis project, the individual qualifications and the rolling time plan for regular consultations and update reports. The Doctoral Degree Agreement does not substitute the admission as a doctoral student.
