We are not aware of any academic requirements for this programme.
Together with the future corresponding supervisor (see art.11) the candidate requests permission from the doctoral committee of the faculty to which the corresponding supervisor is affiliated to enrol as a PhD researcher. The candidate must meet the following requirements:
- Either (1) the candidate must hold a Flemish Master’s degree relevant to the doctoral research or an equivalent higher education degree, and also have obtained at least a distinction or have distinguished him/herself with high-quality scientific publications or design-oriented achievements,
- Or (2) the candidate must have passed the predoctoral exam with the degree of distinction (see art. 7).
The candidate must also have sufficiently mastered the language of the discipline in order to be able to participate actively in the research.
