Public presentation at the Faculty

Doctoral candidates and their supervisors are asked to present the proposed project at the Faculty together. The research proposal giving an outline of the project is the basis for the presentation and serves a twofold purpose. First, new doctoral candidates and their research topics are introduced to the faculty staff. Second, the presentation is expected to offer all attendants a platform for exchange and feedback. The doctoral advisory boards who are invited to this event may give advice and express their view on the proposed thesis project. The Directorate of Studies decides on research proposals based on the recommendations of the doctoral advisory boards.
