Although there are no study fees for IMPDET-LE students, the doctoral candidates are responsible for fund other costs related to their studies such as attending seminars and conferences, books, data collection, and for enabling full-time studying. The candidates are responsible for applying funding in collaboration with the supervisors. Currently, the IMPDET-LE programme is not able to provide any funding for the students. In this page, we have collected sources where the IMPDET-LE students are able to search funding for their studies.
