External doctoral candidates – i.e. candidates who are supervised by a professor of the University of Passau but are neither enrolled nor employed at the University – as well as external habilitation candidates can apply for a ZIM account, which enables them to use the computer network and virtual learning environments of the University.
We will be happy to set up an account with an associated university e-mail address for you as an external doctoral or postdoctoral researcher. Please note the following information and fill in all required fields (*)
On a rotational basis, the username expires every mid-November and mid-May. For licensing reasons, we have to check twice a year whether you are still a member of the University in order to be able to renew your username.
We automatically update and renew the username for all registered/admitted external doctoral candidates. You do not have to concern yourself with this. External habilitation students will be contacted twice a year and asked for your current confirmation of supervision from their supervisor.
Before submitting, do not forget to upload your admission confirmation to doctoral studies or your acceptance as a doctoral or habilitation student.
The accounts of external doctoral and postdoctoral researchers are set up similarly to undergraduate/master's students' ZIM accounts but differ in the following points:
The associated e-mail address has the format "email@example.com" (the names are separated by a hyphen).
Sending e-mails from your university e-mail address is only possible via the web interface of the e-mail system. You cannot access protected IT resources and services externally via OpenVPN or eduroam.
- Doctoral candidates: upload your letter of acceptance as a doctoral student or admission to doctoral study
- Habilitation candidates: upload your acceptance as a habilitation candidate
In order to enable us to process your enquiry, we reserve the right to forward it to the relevant departments.
