Applicants need to fill in the following application form and upload their CV and research proposal for evaluation.

The consortia of three universities participating in the predoctoral programme China will first determine whether the research proposals satisfy the admissibility criteria:

b) the proposal has a well formulated research question
d) the proposal’s research question, problem or hypothesis is embedded within a broader literature framework
e) the proposal provides an argumented overview of the selected methodological choices

They will also check the applicant’s CVs and merit during the undergraduate and postgraduate years.

Admissible proposals and the CVs are assessed by a selection committee of three scientists-researchers involved in the pre-doctoral programme. The committee has access to all the research proposals as well as their CVs. The committee might want to contact the candidates for further information and inquiries. 

In principle, applicants are informed about their application status within one to three weeks after application.

Applicants are sent a formal email informing them of the committee’s decision and the reasons underlying this.

Admitted candidates will receive an invoice or options for payment for the participation in the program.
