Welcome to the homepage of the PhD Admission Board of the School of Spatial Planning.
You have finished your studies and want to take a doctoral degree? There are several steps to keep in mind.
The PhD process isn´t provided by TU Dortmund itself and there is no central admissions office for the university. Instead all faculties organize the PhD process individually, regulate the admissions processes and take care of their doctoral candidates.
The most important information is as follows:
To achieve a doctoral degree you need a supervisor who advices and supports you in choosing the theme and methodology, project planning and individual advanced training. A Supervision Acceptance is a written confirmation of a professor to mentor your whole PhD Procedure.
There are two ways to start the PhD Procedure:
a. either you ask a potential supervisor on your own
b. or you send in your documents and a CV before your formal application. In this case the secretary of the PhD Admission Board will find an appropriate supervisor for your Doctoral Procedure.
The supervisor has to be a member of the School of Spatial Planning.
