Doctoral Data Management


In close collaboration with the faculties’ doctoral offices, the Bonn Graduate Center has been collecting data on all doctoral candidates based on the University Statistics Law since 2017. In addition to the ongoing data collection, we are working on implementing a registration software which will allow a quick and efficient collection and administration of the data. Hereby, the University of Bonn will gain a board overview of the doctoral student body and can develop customized orientation and training offers.
