The University of Mannheim has put together a list of important guides, documents and contact persons to ensure that, as a supervisor, you are in the best position to support your doctoral candidates.
Guides to Good Doctoral Supervision
The Advising Agreement supports the supervising professors and their doctoral candidates in planning doctorates with realistic schedules.
If you have any questions on the Advising Agreement, please contact Ms. Bradt.
Independent ombudspersons are available if differences between supervisors and their doctoral candidates arise during the course of the doctorate. They can give you confidential advice and provide suggestions on how to resolve conflicts.
You can also make an appointment with Ms. Bradt, who is an advisor on doctoral studies in general, before contacting an ombudsperson.
Ombudspersons at the University of Mannheim mediate between doctoral candidates and their supervisors if disagreements arise. Find out more about good research practice at the University of Mannheim.
