Doctoral Colloquia

You have performed academic work in connection with your doctoral studies (coursework completed at an external university, performance in the context of a scientific conference or contribution towards a specialist publication, etc.) and would like to clarify whether this work can be recognized as a doctoral colloquium in the general doctorate at the Faculty of Law of the University of Zurich (RWF UZH) or would like to have this work recognized.

Your supervisor will decide whether these academic achievements may be recognized as a doctoral colloquium.


The following four steps are necessary for the recognition of an academic achievement as a doctoral colloquium:

  1. Clarify with your supervisor whether the external academic achievements may be recognized as a doctoral colloquium.
  2. The supervisor confirms the recognition on the Doctorate Recognition Form.
  3. Submit the completed form to the Student Center via contact form (section "Doctorate/PhD") for recognition.
  4. After the academic achievements have been recognized as a doctoral colloquium, you will receive a notification from the Student Center. The recognized achievements are then visible in the module booking tool under the heading Academic Achievements.


Submit the form by the following deadlines:

  • for spring semester: 30 June
  • for fall semester: 31 December
