The University of Rostock focuses on the classification of career phases according to the Framework for Research Careers of the European Commission. Afterwards, the doctoral phase is the first career phase in the academic career - First Stage Researcher (R1). The doctorate serves the acquisition of professional competence and the ability to scientific activity and leads to the creation of an independent, scientific work - the dissertation. In addition, personal and social skills that are important for university and non-university career paths are to be further developed.

The doctoral regulations of the individual faculties specify the basic conditions as well as the procedural rules. Thus, the faculties are directly responsible for the quality of the doctoral studies, compliance with the rules to ensure good scientific practice and to avoid scientific misconduct and for the administrative processes of a doctorate. The Graduate Academy is available as a central service facility to support all doctoral students.
