Supervision agreements have established themselves internationally as a quality standard in doctoral training. They enable doctoral candidates to define mutual expectations in a transparent manner, to formulate goals and to check whether these goals are being achieved. All doctoral candidates at the Graduate School OLTECH conclude a supervision agreement with their supervisor. The supervision agreement is not a legally binding contract, but a document that - in the sense of a promise made voluntarily - provides guidance and demands a commitment.
Application & Admission
