No matter whether you just arrived or are well on track of your doctoral studies, bureaucracy in Germany can be a challenge for foreigners. Since January 2015, two academic tutors offer weekly consultations for international doctoral researchers on administrative issues or general questions about the life in Hamburg.
Weekly consultations for international doctoral researchers
We offer guidance for your first steps in Hamburg!
- What possibilities do I have to start my doctoral studies at the MIN Faculty of Universität Hamburg?
- How to finance my doctoral research?
- Who offers support?
- What are the first steps after my arrival in Hamburg?
- How do I enrol at Universität Hamburg?
You can contact our academic tutors Emilin Joma da Silva and Lisa Amelung at any time sending an e-mail to tutor.min"AT"uni-hamburg.de. To schedule an appointment for virtual counselling via Zoom please contact us. The counselling occurs during the tutors’ office hours.
Please note: If you have concerns not related to the questions above, we encourage you to also contact the MINGS Doctoral Representatives.
Virtual counselling hours
