GHU looks for an appropriate advisor for the students’ intended research and makes contact between advisor and doctoral student.
Advisor and student then arrange a meeting (virtual) where the advisor will be doing the interview in order to determine whether he will take responsibility for advising the intended research project of the doctoral student applicant. If this is the case the applicant is finally admitted to the doctoral study program and the advisory agreement between both is signed; if negative there will be a second attempt with a new advisor. If in this second interview the new advisor will not take responsibility for instructing, the doctoral student candidate is declined. The partial payment of 500 USD is charged for this procedure. If the student is admitted, the total amount is credited to the sum payment of 25.000 USD.
