Boards & Committees

The Medical Faculty and the Faculty of Science together with the Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics provide cooperatively the neuroscience graduate programs at the University of Tübingen. Together, three individual Graduate Schools form the Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience, which is governed by an Interfaculty Committee (Gemeinsame Kommission).

Each Graduate School has its own Education Board (Studienkommission), an Examination Board (Prüfungsausschuss) and, finally, a Selection Board (Auswahlkommission).

The three graduate schools have a common doctoral program for the interfaculty subject of neurosciences. Responsible for the doctoral regulations and the doctoral procedures is the Doctorate Board (Promotionsausschuss) which is formed by the memebrs of the Interfaculty Committee.
