Doctoral studies and matriculation
Upon the completion of the doctoral studies, those students that were matriculated in the LSM programme as part of the Faculty of Biology will be awarded 180 ECTS points. For doctoral students, whose supervisors are from the of Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, and therefore are graduating from outside of the Faculty of Biology, will be awarded 30 ECTS points on their certificate of participation.
Doctoral studies are not limited to a defined period of time. However, doctoral students need to be matriculated for a full 6 semesters at the LSM to be eligible for the 180 ECTS points upon graduation. If you do not complete your degree within these 6 semesters, this is not a problem as matriculation has no effect on the doctoral degree completion.
