One of these objectives is to complete the thesis in no more than three years; after this period students may request a one-year extension.
Applicants can find further details about the admission process as well as the contents and organization of each programme on this page (new window). You should start by requesting access to the programme you are interested in, and by contacting the researcher responsible for the thesis proposal to ask for their advice.
