Proposal Defense

In accordance with international standards, especially the American PhD programs the doctoral students will have a proposal defense, where their research project will be examined regarding feasibility, originality and methodological norms by the involved University professors of the graduate college and if necessary by further members of the doctoral committee.

Should any problems occur during the proposal defense the doctoral students will get an additional opportunity of proposal defense with a contingency plan within six months (that is at the lastest the 18th months of their doctoral project).
