Kooperative Promotionen


Kooperative Promotionen

Da Hochschulen kein eigenes Promotionsrecht haben, bietet die Hochschule Mainz Promotionsverfahren in Kooperation mit Universitäten an. Sie können sowohl ein strukturiertes Promotionsprogramm mit der London South Bank University absolvieren, als auch eine individuelle kooperative Promotion mit anderen Universitäten. So gab es in den letzten Jahren beispielsweise Promotionsverfahren mit den Universitäten Weimar, Koblenz-Landau und Mainz.
