Change master → doctorate
You are changing from a master's degree program to a doctorate? The change can be registered as part of the renewal of your semester registration in self-service. The same dates/deadlines apply: August 31 for the fall semester and January 31 for the spring semester. If you want to start a PhD in the coming semester, choose the option "Change of level to doctorate" and submit the registration form with or without any further changes. Then submit your confirmation of supervision as quickly as possible, and certainly by October 15 for the fall semester or March 31 for the spring semester.
We will then change your registration to a doctorate and invoice you CHF 200 for the semester fees for doctoral students.
