Application Process 

The doctoral study process may start with the initiative and application of the doctoral student  canidate.

After contacting: 

  1. The applicant fills  in the forms and sends the required information (title and abstract of the  intended research). The following documents must be sent in digital form: extended curriculum  vitae, copy of passport, copies of education and degrees (i.e., academic courses, Bachelor, Master, Mag., Dipl.‐Ing., Licenciado, etc.) with the name of the corresponding institution, place, date, subject, credit points), passport photograph (in jpg  or pdf format). 
  2. GHU’s Academic Registry  office checks the entirety of the transferred documents by the applicant and declares admission (or not) to the doctoral study program within a period of four  weeks. 
  3. GHU’s office informs the applicant about the formal admission (or not) to the doctoral study program and sends the partial payment invoice of about 500 USD. 
  4. GHU looks for an appropriate  advisor for the students’ intended research and makes contact between advisor and doctoral  student. 
  5. Advisor and student then arrange a meeting (virtual) where the advisor will be doing the interview in order to determine whether he will  take responsibility for advising the intended research project of the doctoral student applicant.  If this is the case the applicant is finally admitted to the doctoral study program, and the advisory agreement  between both is signed; if negative there will be a second attempt with a new advisor.  If in this second interview the new advisor will not take responsibility for instructing,  the doctoral student candidate is declined. The partial payment of 500 USD is charged for this procedure. If the student is admitted, the total amount is credited to the sum payment of 25.000 USD.
