Dissertation research proposal
 
 
 
In the beginning of the second year, PhD students will choose a supervisory committee, consisting of WISE faculty and its affiliated faculty from overseas institutions, one or more members of which will act as a main supervisor(s). The supervisory team monitors the student’s progress on a regular basis. Each year the student is asked to write a short statement on the progress made in the previous 12 months, outline the research training undertaken, and discuss with the supervisory team the training which he/she will undertake in the coming year, as well as the future direction of research.
 
 
 
Opportunities
During the preparation of their thesis, PhD students are encouraged to apply for funding from the “Chinese Government Scholarship Program” in order to carry out research abroad at our affiliated universities.
