Getting started

Individual doctorate or a dissertation as part of a doctoral program? Besides the topic and content of the dissertation, the structure of supervision is an important aspect to be considered if you plan to pursue a doctoral degree at a German university.

•	Betreuung durch einen Doktorvater oder eine Doktormutter

The differences between a "traditional" dissertation and a doctoral program are in the form and structure of supervision.

The academic requirements and the examination (dissertation and viva) are the same for all doctoral candidates, the requirements set out in the joint doctoral regulations of the Technische Universität Berlin apply for all candidates.

An overview of doctoral programs (e.g. DFG Research Training Groups) can be found on our website, individual supervision is possible in all fields represented by a professor at the university.

You can find more information about the different models of supervision online at the website Research in Germany.
