Students

VGSE is a small-scale PhD program with close interaction between students and faculty members. Students are enrolled at the University of Vienna as PhD student and receive a PhD degree from the same university. Most of the students receive a full fellowship through an employment contract at the University of Vienna. They attend highly advanced courses and research seminars where they, like other researchers, present their work in progress. Furthermore they perform their own research and write their dissertation in the VGSE student offices. Upon graduation from VGSE they should have developed into independent researchers of the highest academic standards.
