The bylaws of the University of Würzburg Graduate Schools (UWGS) determine the organisational structure of the UWGS.

Rules regarding admission, the study program, the role of the advisory committee as well as the process of thesis submission and thesis defense are laid down in the graduation regulations. They consist of a general section that applies to all graduate schools and sections specific for each graduate school (section 4. starting on page 41 specifically refers to the GSST).
