A PhD study differs depending to the research domain you are working at. An important part of your time you will do a literature study and you will collect data or samples and make analyses. You will also study methodologies to analyse and interpret your results, to be able to conclude relevant research results. At each part of your PhD you can count on support of a scientific promoter.

As a PhD student, you will be working intensively on the preparation of your PhD thesis for four years. You will be involved minimally in other tasks such as teaching assignments or rendering services. In this case, you do not apply for a vacancy, but you make a PhD proposal yourself with a funding body.
You will enter into competition with other applicants with the funding body you contacted, and it depends on the quality of your study results if your application text will be selected for funding.
With a scholarship statute, you can bury yourself undisturbed into the research field of your choice for four years. You do not enter an existing research project, but you write the application text yourself, and that’s why you have the opportunity to outline your own research path, in consultation with your supervisor.
