Do you intend to do a doctorate or are you already pursuing a doctorate at a KIT Department? Docata offers you:

  • Compliance with the duty of doctoral researchers to provide information in accordance with the Hochschul-Datenschutzverordnung (Higher Education Data Protection Ordinance)
  • Download of information documents and forms (e.g. application for acceptance at your KIT Department)
  • Reminders of deadlines
