Information on Registration


The Rectorate resolved to register all doctoral candidates of the University of Freiburg.

Registration as a doctoral candidate has the following advantages:

  • authorization to use IT services (including ReDi)
  • eligibility to participate in the IGA’s transdisciplinary qualification program
  • no additional administration fee


In order to register, you will need to obtain acceptance as a doctoral candidate from your faculty. For information on acceptance as a doctoral candidate, click here. After receiving acceptance by your faculty, you can register as a doctoral candidate by submitting the certificate of acceptance from your faculty and the application for registration at the Student Registration Office (german doctoral candidates) or at the International Admissions and Services (IAS) (international doctoral candidates). You will then receive a notice confirming that your account has been created. Other roles and existing accounts (e.g., employee) are not affected when your new account is created. You can use your account to sign up for the courses and workshops of the IGA course program and profit from other services of the University of Freiburg, such as those of the Computing Center. Matriculated doctoral candidates can take advantage of these services using their university account as a doctoral student.

A current flyer provides a brief overview about the differences between the registration and matriculation for doctoral candidates. It is available as a download here.
