Application for Admission to Doctoral studies
As the first step on the way to a doctorate, it is important to find a supervisor for your project. Professors of the University of Lüneburg, who research as experts in their specialty and teach within the Master program of the Leuphana University of Lüneburg are up for election. The subject of you dissertation has to fit in the academic profile of the potential supervisor; moreover, you have to make contact with him or her on your own. At a first meeting you should therefore have a written exposé prepared, in which you outline your research idea.
The professors are assigned to the faculties and institutes of Leuphana. On the respective websites of the faculties you can access the individual sites of the professors via the keyword “Persons”. Usually, you will find the current research activities and publications. Thereby you can get an idea if this person works in your intended doctoral subject. You are welcome to contact the student advisor of the Graduate School for your questions.
