External supervisor: If you cannot find a professor from the faculty able to supervise your topic you can apply for having a supervisor from outside the faculty. A good reason for such an application would be that nobody at our faculty has the expertise in your research topic or that you do your field research outside Freiburg and wish to have one supervisor nearby. If you want to involve an external supervisor/second examiner you and also your faculty thesis supervisor/second examiner must write a letter to the dean of studies, Prof. Fink, and give reasons why you wish to have an external supervisor/second examiner and prove that the person is a full professor at a university.
