How to enrol as a visiting doctoral candidate

IF YOU WILL BE STAYING LONGER THAN ONE SEMESTER

Visiting doctoral candidates may enrol at LUH since the winter semester 2012/13.

Doctoral candidates who will be staying in Hannover for one or two semesters may enrol as visiting doctoral candidates. In order to enrol, please complete the following steps:

  • Please provide the following document signed by the dean's office to confirm that you have been accepted as a visiting doctoral candidate at your faculty.

After obtaining the signed confirmation from their faculty, visiting doctoral candidates must enrol by completing the online form of the Admissions Office. After entering your details, you can generate a PDF file of the form, which must be submitted to the Admissions Office in the Service Centre accompanied by the documents listed in the file.


IF YOU WILL BE STAYING LESS THAN A SEMESTER

A visitor’s pass can be obtained from the International Office, which can be used to:

  •     proof that you are a member of Leibniz University Hannover
  •     benefit from staff discounts at the cafeteria
  •     access the library
  •     book courses at University Sports Centre
Registration in the accident insurance

Visiting doctoral candidates who due to the shortness of their stay at LUH cannot be enrolled at the university, can still be covered by the university's accident insurance for the period of their stay, so long they are working in "similar ways" as employees. In this purpose, an application must be submitted to Dezernat 2.
