Promotion

Award of a doctoral degree on the basis of a doctoral thesis and either an oral examination or a defence of the student`s thesis. As a rule, the doctorate is embarked on after completing a first study course culminating in the Magister, Diplom or Staatsprüfung, as well as after obtaining a Master`s qualification, and the promotion serves as proof of ability to undertake in-depth academic work.
