COS PhD Program
Following admission to the COS PhD program, you need to get enrolled (in this order) at the COS/HBIGS PhD offices, at the Faculty of Biosciences, and, optionally, at Heidelberg University. Students from abroad may additionally need to apply for visa and/or residence permits. A guideline outlining these procedures is provided by the Graduate Acadamy of Heidelberg University and can be found in the Download Section.
Starting with enrollment at the COS PhD office, each student documents his/her activities of the PhD curriculum (TAC meetings, participation in seminars, retreats, conferences, etc.) on a dedicated document, the so-called blue sheet. As the blue sheet serves as proof of participation, it must not be lost and needs to be signed by the COS PhD program coordinator (Prof. Alexis Maizel) before you can register for your thesis defense.
