Doctoral Candidates

As a doctoral candidate, you have the same options within Eucor – The European Campus as students at the Bachelor and Master levels. You can, for example, take classes at the other member universities in Germany, France, and Switzerland. However, registration or enrollment at the host university is necessary.

The services offered by other European Campus member universities (online services, dining halls, student dorms, reduced rates for public transportation, using libraries, etc.) are also available to you as a doctoral candidate, once you have registered or enrolled, and re-registered or re-enrolled for each new semester.

Binational Doctorate („cotutelle de thèse)

You have the option to complete a cross-border, binational doctorate within the European Campus, a so-called „cotutelle de thèse.“ This type of doctorate enables you to obtain a doctorate degree from two universities at the same time, based on a single thesis and a single exam, approved by the thesis tutors of the two universities concerned.
