Summary of local rules
The admissions board currently meets twice/semester. In the public registration seminar (20 minutes+5 minutes questions/discussion), which is given in English immediately before the board meeting, you present your project plan. Usually there are 2-4 seminars each time.
The application should be handed in two weeks before the board meeting.
You (student+supervisor) appoint an expert in the field (PhD independent from the project) to read the application, and to be present at the registration seminar and at the board meeting. The name and address of the expert should be provided together with your application. You also make sure that the expert gets the application and that she/he comes to the registration seminar and the board meeting.
