Application - FAQs

What is the selection interview like?

After reviewing all complete applications, shortlisted candidates will be invited for a selection interview. In this interview three professors will ask you questions in the fields of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics.

Furthermore, they would like to find out more about your motivation for doing a PhD (at the VGSE) and your intended field of research. The interview can be held face-to-face, via telephone, or via skype. The decision upon acceptance is taken shortly after the interviews.
