Detailed information about your doctorate

Along with the Letter of Admission to doctoral training, doctoral students receive an information sheet providing detailed information about the documents they need to register for the doctorate. You must register at the earliest possible opportunity after beginning your doctoral training. Matriculation is mandatory throughout your doctoral studies. Without registering for the doctorate, it is not possible to earn credit points.

The pages in this section provide information about the doctoral degree structure (process for doctorate) and the final stage of doctoral training (graduation & publication). A full set of important documents relating to the doctorate can be found in documents & factsheets. Information about the Faculty’s doctoral programs is available in the doctoral programs section.

On the occasion of the implementation of the “Employment and Supervision of Doctoral Students/ Postdocs at the University of Basel” process, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences defined the applicable processes at the faculty that deviate from the university process.
