Before prospective doctoral researchers submit their application to the BGHS, a professor of either the Faculty of Sociology or the History Department has to agree to supervise the dissertation project by filling in the form "Statement of Consent". The form can be attached to the application or directly sent to the BGHS
The student-supervisor relationship is governed by the supervision agreement made between the doctoral candidate, the supervisor and the director of the Graduate School. You must sign this agreement to become a BGHS member.
The guidelines offer suggestions for creating a reliable supervisory relationship and aim to prevent student-supervisor conflicts through the timely clarification of mutual expectations. According to the rules of good scientific practice, Bielefeld University has appointed an Ombudsperson.
