Perspectives on Selection
- The research plan should be feasible and of a sufficiently high level of expertise in the priority and strategic areas that the university intends to strengthen, as well as in basic research related to these areas, based on the applicant’s past academic and research achievements.
- The research plan must include sufficient challenging and interdisciplinary elements.
- The research plan is challenging enough to achieve the goal of fostering versatility while maintaining one’s advanced expertise through three months of off-campus study and a wide selection of events and courses.
- The career plan should be based on the student’s doctoral research and its potential to solve social problems or to implement strategies to solve social problems.
- The application and interview should be structured so that the applicant’s research and its significance to society can be easily understood not only by those in the applicant’s field of specialization, but also by those in related interdisciplinary fields.
