Structured Doctoral Programmes
Doctoral candidates who have chosen a structured doctoral programme have a clear advantage. They are supported in a wide range of ways for the entire duration of their doctorate - an additional benefit for doctoral candidates from abroad, as they receive assistance with everyday problems such as finding a flat or opening a bank account, in the form of organised joint leisure activities, and all the way to intensive support from their university.
