Academic record: the academic record of applicants must demonstrate their ability to conduct high quality doctoral research.
Research proposal: the originality and feasibility of the proposed research project play and the way in which it answers a real life problem play a crucial role in the selection procedure.
Potential supervision: one of the many advantages of a joint doctoral degree is that the consortium together offers a far greater range of supervision possibilities than any one institution could manage. That said, we consider carefully whether the consortium can offer the necessary quality of supervision that the proposal requires. If you are interested in the programme but are not sure whether EDOLAD can adequately supervise your project, we advise you to look carefully at the details of participating academics under the Study tab on the front page.
Mobility: mobility is an essential part of the EDOLAD programme and candidates must state their willingness to move and enthusiasm for participating in an international, multicultural community such as EDOLAD.
