A research proposal must accompany the application and potential applicants are encouraged to make contact with Dr Andreas Görke in advance of applying for this programme to discuss the formulation of the proposal and an appropriate pathway for attaining the degree.
Overall, a good research proposal takes time to write and must identify what the proposed research will address and why the proposed research is so important. The length of the proposal depends on the length of the paper.
Here is a brief explanation of the sections needed to complete a standard research proposal as well as the writing timeline you should strive to follow. A two page paper might just require a paragraph or two for a proposal.
