Finding a Supervisor
If you are interested in individual doctoral studies you are usually expected to find a supervisor (Doktorvater/Doktormutter) for your intended doctoral project by yourself. If you are interested in joining a doctoral program, please inform yourself on the website of the respective program about the application requirements and deadlines.
Code of Practice
The GraduateCenterLMU wants to make a contribution towards optimizing the conditions for doctoral studies at LMU Munich. The recommendations for the organisation of doctoral studies are aimed at developing the transparency and the results-oriented focus in the supervision of doctoral candidates. They are especially meant to provide indications on what the participants may expect from each other.
On the basis of a supervision agreement, professors and doctoral candidates can agree on the form of the supervisory relationship.

For supervisors the GraduateCenterLMU offers workshops for exchanging and discussing experiences.
