The doctoral candidate and the supervisor first complete a supervision agreement (a sample of a modifiable supervision agreement can be found here).
In addition, they jointly agree on a mentoring committee consisting of the supervisor plus 2 scientists from the chosen doctoral programme who should have agreed to participate in advance.

- Admission form
- 1 copy of the supervision agreement (a sample of a modifiable supervision agreement can be found here)
- A certified copy of the university degree qualifying for doctoral studies (usually a Master's degree, equivalence must be checked in advance for foreign degrees), original documents/certificates can be certified by the respective Dean's Office
- Depending on the programme, further documents (statement of purpose, curriculum vitae, research plan, etc.)

As confirmation of your admission to BayNAT and acceptance as doctoral candidate, you finally will receive a letter signed by the director or deputy director by mail - and your doctoral procedure will officially begin.
