• during the the interview the members of the entrance board revise the thorough knowlegde of the applicant on the research field, his/her technical and language skills

• there are no prelisted topics available in the entrance process for the doctoral candidates, since their research related knowledge is in the focus of the interview

• 56 points out of 100 are the minimum to be supported by the Doctoral School

• no information can be given about the awarded stipendium by the Doctoral School until the final decision of Tempus Foundation, since the sendig countries make the final lists of the supported applicants not the host institutions (the final decision of the sending countries is expected till the end of June), hence please do not send enquiries to the university till then
