Doctoral Student Council

Let us know what is important to you

We are always glad to receive suggestions regarding the interests and needs of doctoral students. You can either contact us directly or send an email to promovierendenrat(at)

The Doctoral Student Council (German: Rat der Promovierenden - RdP) represents you in all matters concerning your doctorate (analogous to the representation of students by the student council).

You are welcome to join the Studip group "Rat der Promovierenden" to stay up to date with the latest news and information about the RdP and PhD topics. This group is currently under construction and will soon be the best way to stay informed. We are looking for more members and would like to make the RdP an open group. If you would like to get involved in the Doctoral Student Council without any obligations, you are welcome to contact us (
