During the doctoral programme you will carry out your research and, in many cases, you will also have teaching responsibilities. Depending on the doctoral position, you will complete an individual study programme which you will devise with your supervisor and record in your study plan.

A study programme often consists of a general part (research methods, presentation skills and academic English) and a subject-specific part. For more information, consult the website of the Graduate School, research institute or faculty where your doctoral research will be carried out, or ask the contact person of your faculty or Graduate School.
