Partner universities

HAW Hamburg professors supervise doctoral students' research activities jointly with professors at German and international universities.

The form of cooperation adopted by HAW Hamburg and each German or international university is agreed on an individual basis for each doctoral student supervised. The decision to award a doctoral degree is made by the appropriate committees and bodies of the supervising university and is based on that university's regulations for the granting of PhDs.
