Research for students

 

Students interested in scientific work are kindly asked to apply for student research that would enable them to write student research papers and participate in Mini-symposia and Student congresses.

Students are eligible for research only at departments where they passed the exam and got grade 8 or higher.

In the same school year, students may write up to two research papers (one as the first author and another as a co-author or both as a co-author).

List of available research topics/fields available for the next school year (2017/18) is presented below.

For further information or assistance regarding research topics/fields please contact your designated mentor(s) from the appropriate department.
