Information about enrollment as a doctoral student

The Berliner Hochschulgesetz section 25, paragraph 2 regulates: "Doctoral students are members of the university at which they were admitted to do a doctorate. Unless they are already members of the university due to an employment relationship, they are to be enrolled as students for a doctorate. " 

Enrollment for a doctorate is not tied to any deadlines.

Completed your studies at the Charité and enrolled for a doctorate?

Often the studies are over, but the doctorate is not yet completed.

If you would like to enroll seamlessly for a doctorate, you can exmatriculate via the Registrar’s Office at the end of the semester (September 30 or March 31). You can find the application on Campusnet. Only then is it possible to enroll for a doctorate. You can find all additional documents required for this under "Required documents".

As a doctoral student, you keep your current matriculation number. Generally, at the end of each semester, we receive a list of degrees from the State Office for Health and Social Affairs (LaGeSo). You will then be exmatriculated by the Registrar's Office at the end of the semester (September 30th or March 31st). You will be informed in advance via your Charité e-mail address and also by post. You will receive the de-registration and pension certificate by post.
