Finally: the Graduation
When the dissertation is finished, the last steps for graduation can be taken. These are described in detail in Promotion Regulations of BayNAT, § 7-16.
Below you find a summary of the procedure with required forms and provided assistance (subitems in left menu):
Differences to the Promotion Process outside of a Doctoral Program
The promotion procedure is adapted to the processes in the Promotion Regulations of Faculty II, which is also still in effect, but with the following major differences:
The PEER steering committee takes over the tasks of the Promotion Commission, the director of BayNAT those of the dean. The dean's office still takes care of the flow of communication.
For admission the credit points achieved during the program have to be proved, and 4 (instead of 6) copies of the dissertation have to be submitted. The certificates that have already been shown for the access to BayNAT are omitted.
The Examining Board consists of at least 4 (instead of 5) members, usually three of those have already been familiar with the graduate's subject for a longer time.
As a rule, the Docotoral Exam is - instead of only on request - open to university members. Upon request it may take place to the exclusion of public.
The rules for the publication of the dissertation have been updated.
Some time frames during the procedure were tightened in favour of the graduate.
