A key component of research activities at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences is supporting young academics. Doctoral programs are an integral part of teaching and research.

Currently, there are around 70 doctoral students at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences pursuing their studies in a cooperative individual set-up, in one of the structured programs or in a Promotionszentrum.

The updated Hessian Higher Education Act (HHG) offers universities of applied sciences the right to autonomously confer doctoral degrees.
The three universities of applied sciences RheinMain, Frankfurt and Fulda possess this right in the field of Social work and execute it in the Promotionszentrum Soziale Arbeit.
In cooperation with the universities of applied sciences Darmstadt, Frankfurt and Fulda RheinMain University executes the Promotionszentrum Angewandte Informatik, which confers doctoral degrees in the field of applied computer science.

 

 

 

A cross-university doctoral network (GraduiertenNetzwerk Hochschule RheinMain) helps doctoral candidates to forge links and share and exchange ideas. Network members are also eligible for financial support and free training and seminars for their doctorate.

As a requirement for an application doctoral candidates have to name the doctoral advisor at RheinMain university.
