International students are also welcome to perform a research work at our School. However, there is no service provided to match student requests with on-going research projects at the School. A student who wishes to carry out a research work must contact the research group or professor directly and make the arrangements with them before applying. After following these steps, the student can apply as an exchange student.

Evaluation of the research work: it is assessed by a Board of Examiners during a public and oral presentation. More details and deadlines.
