Registration as PhD Student

880 x 125 einschreibung 

As a PhD candidate you are able to register as a student at the University of Siegen. While this is not mandatory in most faculties, there are a number of advantages to being enroled. Once the registration process is completed, you will receive the USi Card, which is simultaneously your so-called Semesterticket. With the you can use all public transport (with the exception of the high-speed trains IC and ICE) in the whole of North Rhine-Westphalia. Furthermore, as registered student you can apply for a room in student accommodation provided by the Studierendenwerk (please find further information here) and you will also receive reduced concession prices at the Mensa [canteen], the cafeteria, and often for cultural events or cultural sites.

Important: The unisono portal is open for the purpose of registering as a student from February and August respectively for the following semester. You can find the exact dates here. This means that you can already register as a PhD student before coming to Germany if you will be arriving in during the same semester. This way you can usually collect your USi Card directly upon arrival.

You will need the following documents to register as a student:

» Certificates: University Entrance Qualification, Bachelor's, Master's (in German or English)
» Letter of supervision
» Scan of passport
» Proof of finances
» Confirmation of Admittance by the PhD Admissions Board (can be submitted until the end of the first semester)
Note: International PhDs who will receive their PhDs abroad do not need to submit this.
