Selection and admission


Direct enrollment in the PhD phase is possible for excellent candidates, but always subject to funding. Available positions are announced in open calls at the website of TU/e, the COBRA website, the websites of the participating groups, this Graduate Program website and other public sites. Information on announced positions can be directly obtained from the project leader offering the project.


Selection will be based on the qualifications obtained in the MSc phase. Depending on the project and funding conditions, the writing of a research proposal will be part of the selection procedure and this research proposal will be a major criterion. When this applies, candidates should contact the Program director, Dr. Rob van der Heijden, for information and assistance in writing the research proposal. A personal interview will always be part of the selection procedure.
