Students formulate the research question for their dissertation in consultation with their supervisor. Supervisors are to be selected from lecturers/ professors on the programme who are authorised to examine. The candidate is entitled to propose a supervisor for her/his dissertation. There is no guarantee that such a proposal will be accepted. Persons authorised to examine must be staff members of the national university or one of the partner universities. Proposed supervisors must sign a written statement that they commit themselves to supervising the student. Team work may be allowed, if each individual contribution can be defined based on chapters, numbers of pages or other objective criteria, and thus evaluated. Students are required to present the research question and design of their MA.
