How is "Research Experience" calculated?

For the purpose of this project, your research experience is calculated from the day you received the first higher education degree which would allow you to go on to PhD studies. For most applicants, this will be the Master's Degree.

Please note that it does not matter whether the relevant degree enables you to study a specific PhD, but that it allows you the general admission to PhD programmes.

Research experience is generally gained from the following activities:

  • Paricipation in a postgraduate course
  • Field Research / Research Assisstance
  • Professional research experience
