Why a 4-Year PhD?

A few of the benefits our PhD candidates will get from our move to a 4-year PhD program: 
 

1. More time to structure projects.

2. Better opportunities for significant periods abroad, including training opportunities and partnerships.

3. Possibility to work on multiple projects, thus gaining experience in areas other than thesis project.

4. Projects can be more ambitious, for example involving multiple techniques or special populations.

5. More articles published during the PhD.

6. Better opportunities for post-graduate employment.
