Description of research interests
The description of your research interests provides the host university with an idea of the subject areas you are most interested in within the study programme of your choice.
The description of your interests does not bind you with regard to the eventual topic of your PhD dissertation. However, it gives the evaluators of your application at the host university a basic idea of whether your interests are aligned with what the department/university can offer.
