General Information

Curriculum changes 2018

As of 1st of October, changes to the curricula of all Doctoral and PhD degree programs come into effect. The changes apply to all students who started a doctoral or PhD program since the summer semester 2018 (because the by-laws changed on 1.1.2018). For all doctoral and PhD students who started their studies before that time, nothing much will change unless they voluntarily switch to the new version.
