The PhD thesis produced should make scholarly significant contributions in the chosen field of study. Students also have the opportunity to develop and strengthen their research skills, explore their critical and analytical skill, expand networking or build collaborations on publications.

The students put forward a research topic of their interest and they can work on research projects based on their supervisors’ research interest. This should be mutual between supervisor and student.
